Like I said in last week's post, I absolutely love making dips and spreads. I could make an entire meal out of dips. Wait, scratch that - I'm sure I already have. But dips are fun and easy to make and are great to serve to guests.
This is a great quick and easy dip to make. Although I've used the substitute of canned salmon and liquid smoke, it's got flavor that is spot on. I bet that most tasters won't be able to tell that this dip doesn't include the pricier real thing. Serve with crackers, grilled bread rounds, or try the Crispy Flatbread.
"Smoked" Salmon Spread
2 (7.7 oz) pkgs salmon, drained
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, room temperature
1 tbsp prepared horseradish (or more to taste)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp liquid smoke
In medium bowl, add salmon. Using a fork, make sure salmon is well flaked and doesn't remain in large pieces. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Allow to chill in the refrigerator before serving for flavors to get friendly. Serve and enjoy!
