Smoked Salmon Dip

Yep, that’s right, I’m doing an appetizer tonight.  Hey, it’s easy and yummy, and a perfect recipe to post after a long day spent on an 8 hour round trip bus ride and zoo trip with 6 different classrooms worth of kindergartners.  I’m tired, I’m sore, and I’m mentally spent.  Yea, we had a blast.

No really, we did!  Nicholas said his favorite part was getting to see the tiger roar. Here is a picture of Nick and his buddy Cole posing on top of a dinosaur.  Forgive the picture quality; it was taken from my cell phone.  I really wanted to take my good camera, but I figured me wandering off to shoot pictures of the animals and scenery while the kids roamed aimlessly in circles saying “are you done taking pictures yet?” might not go over so well.

Ok, so the salmon dip.  This stuff, if you like salmon, if REALLY addicting.  I could literally take a box of crackers and a bowl of dip, go hide in a corner, and not come back out until I licked the bowl – CLEAN.  It’s so yummy, I’ve been known to hide the crackers in the back of the cupboard just so I don’t have to share.  And the best part is, it’s super easy to make.  Here’s what you’ll need:

Ingredients Needed:

1 15.75 Oz. Can Salmon
1 8 Oz. Package Cream Cheese, Softened
1 tsp Liquid Smoke
1/2 Lemon, Juiced
1/4 Cup Onion, diced
1 tsp Dill (Dried or Fresh Works)
2 Cloves Garlic
Salt and Pepper to Taste

To put this dip together, pull out your food processor and throw in your salmon and cream cheese.  Turn it on and mix it until it’s smooth.  Now add in your onion, lemon, liquid smoke, garlic, and dill.  Process again until smooth.  Now all that’s left to do is take a taste and add your salt and pepper according to your liking.  And voila.  I told you it was simple.

What’s that?  You didn’t hear what I said?  You’re too busy eating?  What do you mean I can’t have a cracker and some of your dip?  I see my job here is done.  I hope everyone has a great weekend!
