Smoked Salmon Dip


People go crazy for this old-school smoked salmon dip. We like to serve it with potato chips and champagne.

Makes about 2 cups

8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

½ cup crème fraîche

1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest

juice of ½ a lemon

2 scallions, very finely chopped

4 ounces smoked salmon, finely chopped

cracked black pepper

1. Using a stand mixer, a handheld beater, or a whisk, beat the cream cheese until it is smooth and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

2. Fold in the remaining ingredients and season with cracked black pepper.
