Friday Food for Thought—Smoked Salmon Mousse

This is one of those delicious spreads that will have your guests scooping the last bits from the bottom of the bowl! I like to include it in our Christmas Eve buffet, but it's perfect party food for any occasion.

4 ounces smoked salmon
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
juice of half a lemon
1/2 teaspoon dried dill
salt and pepper to taste

Put the smoked salmon in a food processor or mixing bowl and blend until smooth. Add the cream, cream cheese, lemon juice, dried dill weed, salt and pepper. Mix well. Transfer to a serving dish, cover and chill for several hours.

Put the serving dish in the middle of a platter and surround it with an assortment of crackers, thinly sliced baguette, cucumber slices and celery sticks, and let your guests do the spreading!

Happy holidays!

Until next time,

Hi, Gillian! I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday!

We will certainly enjoy our Christmas Eve buffet. It's as casual as Christmas Day dinner is formal!

Don't you love this time of year?
