thought I'd take this beautiful dip to a small Cinco de Mayo party a
friend is having tonight. Light, luscious and sooooo easy to make!
8 ounces cream cheese
at room temperature
1/2 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons minced dill, plus sprigs for garnish
1 scallion, white and green parts
1 tablespoon milk, half-and-half, or cream
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
100 grams good salmon roe
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment,
cream the cream cheese until smooth. With the mixer on medium speed,
add the sour cream, lemon juice,
dill scallion, milk, salt, and pepper. With a rubber spatula,fold in
3/4 of the salmon roe. Spoon the dip into a bowl and garnish with the
remaining salmon roe and sprigs of fresh dill.
Serve with chips, toast points, or crackers.
