Salmon & Cream Cheese Spread

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.

This sounds so good. I am definitely going to make this very soon. I love the Nourishing Traditions Cookbook. It does have great recipes.

Looks wonderful. I’ll have to try this with my homemade cream cheese from coconut yogurt. We have dairy allergies so I make it from scratch using coconut milk. Thanks for stopping by the blog carnival and sharing the recipe with us.

Oh this looks great! I am having a get together this week and happen to have almost everything to make this! I might even bake some crackers to bring as well. YUM! Thanks for sharing. I found you over at Real Foods Wed. by the way.

Thanks, KerryAnn! I hadn’t heard of coconut yogurt before but it sounds really good!

Thanks, Jennie, and that is a great idea- homemade crackers would be wonderful with this dip!
