A Fun and Easy Snack for Parties and Picnics
New Year’s Eve is almost here. And in a few weeks there will be that big Super Bowl bash. So the quest for party food is on. Snacks, spreads, and dips rule this time of year. And one of the best I know is Smoky Salmon and Cream Cheese Dip.
Salmon and cream cheese make a classic combo. Think lox and bagels with a schmear. Take the salmon and cream cheese, add some smoky notes and a bit of onion or scallion, and you’ve got the makings of a delicious dip. It’s great with your chip of choice — I tend to prefer ridged potato chips (which stand up better to dipping) or tortilla chips. You can also spread it on crackers, or on pieces of that little party rye that supermarkets feature so prominently this time of the year (they always have it in stock, but you see more of it during the holidays).
Once your guests taste this dip, it will disappear quickly. But if by chance you have some left over? Spread it on your morning bagel.
