An easy dip that you can serve with celery for a party or a quick get-together. The smoked salmon cream cheese is great on other things too!
Prep Time: 10minutes
Total Time: 10minutes
8oz.package of cream cheese, allow to sit on the counter for at least 20 minutes
4oz.package of refrigerated smoked salmon, chopped
2green onions, sliced thinly
pepper to taste
8celery stalks, cut into thirds and cut into thirds long ways into sticks
Add cream cheese, smoked salmon and green onions to a medium-sized mixing bowl. Mix together using a metal or wooden spoon ensuring the smoked salmon is evenly distributed throughout the cream cheese.
Add pepper to taste. Take the 1/2 lemon and squeeze twice over the mixture (making sure to not allow lemon seeds to fall in) and mix again.
Serve as a dip. Dip can be prepared the night before.
This can also be served as stuffed celery. Do not cut into sticks and stuff the celery using a butter knife.
For this recipe, I prefer the plain smoked salmon you find in your grocer's refrigerated seafood section. I think it tasted much better than sockeye wild (smoked) salmon. Do not use the non-refrigerated smoked salmon products for this recipe.
