Salmon Dip

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup  mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Cup  cream cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon  small diced red onion
  • 1 Tablespoon  freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 Pound  thinly sliced smoked salmon, cut into small pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon  dill
  •    Crackers, for serving

While we see salmon toast recipes dating back as far as 1885, smoked salmon, or "lox," did not grace our presence until the 1940s, just in time for the dip phenomena. This dip is a classic that still makes its way to the coffee table today and is good enough that even the most salmon-adverse will like it.

Directions

In a food processor, blend the mayonnaise, cream cheese, and lemon juice together. Fold into the red onion, salmon, and dill. Serve.
