I’d been meaning to try out the salmon version of this Nourishing Traditions recipe for a while now and I shouldn’t have waited so long because it’s extremely easy and versatile. It would be great with crackers or served as a dip for vegetables. You only need a few ingredients: cream cheese (preferably homemade or organic), canned wild or freshly cooked salmon, flax oil, dill, and chives (which I omitted since I didn’t have any on hand).
I made the spread using my Magic Bullet, but I’m sure a food processor would work as well if not better (I just like to clean up the least amount of pieces possible!). To make the spread, add 2 oz salmon to your mixer and pulse. Next add 2 Tbsp flax oil, 1 cup softened cream cheese, 1 Tbsp chopped fresh dill, and 1 Tbsp chopped fresh chives. Once blended, your dip is ready and can be covered and refrigerated until served.
Even though I used dried dill since that’s all I had on hand, the dip tasted great and hopefully next time I can use fresh as I’m sure it would offer even more flavor. Overall, the dip makes for a healthy snack and would be nice to set out at a party or get-together.
