Creamy Smoked Salmon Dip Times Two

I made this appetizer for a party a couple of weeks ago. It is very easy and has just a few ingredients. I served it with Triskets and Wheat Thins, but it would be delicious spread on any cracker or nice toasted slices of bruschetta. I'm using fresh herbs from our garden. If you aren't growing your own, it is well worth the cost to purchase fresh herbs, but dried will work nicely in a pinch.


Salmon and Dill Cream Cheese Dip

4 0z smoked salmon, roughly chopped
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
3 TBSP finely minced fresh dill ( or two teaspoons of dried dill weed)
freshly squeezed juice of half a lemon
salt and pepper to taste

Stir all ingredients together until homogenous. Chill for at least one hour, but longer allows the flavors to meld.

Chipotle Salmon Cream Cheese Dip

4 oz smoked salmon, roughly chopped
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
3 TBSP minced cilantro
2 chipotle chiles packed in adobo sauce along with 2 tsp of the sauce(found with the gourmet mexican and spanish goods)
freshly squeezed juice of half a lime

Stir all ingredients together until homogenous and refrigerate for at least one hour.
