If you need a last minute snack for the 4th of July festivities I have just the recipe for you. I picked Sid's Smoked Salmon Spread for July's unveiling of the Secret Recipe Club.
Sid of Sid's Palm Cooking has been blogging for quite some time. She liked to make and share food with others and just thought starting a blog would be fun. She is Danish and has all sorts of Danish recipes. I was intrigued and almost went with the Fransk Vafler (French Waffles) or the Vandbakkelser (Cream Puff loaf) but in the midst of picking my recipe for the Secret Recipe Club I was also thinking about what I wanted to bring to several family gatherings for the 4th of July.
Through my search of Sid's blog I learned she hosts Tapas night. It was a treasure chest of appetizers and I quick found this smoked salmon dip. We had fresh dill from the garden and I was so happy to use for this dip. The ingredient list is not full of unique things but did require a trip to the grocery store; we don't readily keep smoke salmon on hand. It was a quick pick up though on my weekly trip to the store.
The dip comes together so quickly. Sid used a stand mixer but I ended up throwing all of the ingredients into our blender. About a minute of pulsing led to a done dip. I enjoyed it with Triscuits but my husband said Ritz crackers were the way to go. We ran out without leftovers but I can imagine this would be fantastic in the morning on a bagel.
