Smoked Salmon Spread

I made this spread for my lunch event last week and it was so delicious!  I love smoked salmon on crackers with all of the accoutrements, but it tends to be a little messy and hard to pile on one cracker.  This is perfect, because all of the flavors are mixed into one convenient dollop.

I found the recipe via Ina Garten, and as usual, her recipe did not disappoint.  The only addition I made was to stir in some capers as a finishing touch. 


  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish, drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 pound (4 ounces) smoked salmon, minced


Cream the cheese in an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment until just smooth. Add the sour cream, lemon juice, dill, horseradish, salt, and pepper, and mix. Add the smoked salmon and mix well. Chill and serve with crudites or crackers.

  1. That sounds interesting. I don't like horseradish -- do you think it would still taste good without it?
