Smoked Salmon Spread

November/December 1992

Your rating: None Average: 4.4 (11 votes)

A splash of pepper-flavored vodka gives this salmon spread a sophisticated flair. If you like, use plain vodka instead but be sure to season generously with freshly cracked pepper before serving. Smoothly pureed nonfat cottage cheese replaces cream cheese and sour cream to cut the fat by about 80 percent.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Been making this for over a decade! I put an extra few ounces of lox into the food processor, and use fresh dill sprigs to garnish. "
