Smoked Salmon Spread makes a creamy and delicious appetizer and I love it for a special brunch. My favorite way to serve Smoked Salmon Spread is on toasted bagels, but I also love it with crackers and it tastes really good on cucumber slices if you are watching your carbs.

I use a full block of cream cheese mixed with a little heavy cream to make it easier to spread. For flavor I add some finely chopped red onion, a full tablespoon of capers (love them!), some fresh dill, and horseradish for a little kick. Then of course the salmon. Six ounces of chopped smoked salmon for lots of salmon flavor.

  1. This turned out good! The whole family loved it. We ended up adding green onions. It definitely needs to sit in fridge for an hour or more before eating, so the flavors can meld. Will make tgis again.
