Smoked Salmon Spread

Two 8 oz packages of cream cheese
Two pieces of smoked salmon(about 8 oz), skin removed
One small clove of fresh garlic minced
One jalapeno minced, plus one for garnish, both are optional
One to two tablespoons of plain yogurt, (thins it out a bit)
1/4 cup green onions sliced thin

Break up the salmon in a bowl and pick out any bones. Add room temp. cream cheese, garlic and jalapeno. Mix well. I use a Kitchen Aid stand mixer, but have done it with a hand held mixer also. Add the green onions last and mix just enough to incorporate. If you mix too much they break down and disappear. I like to garnish with sliced jalapenos before serving.

    Do you know if you could use low fat or fat free cream cheese? Also, what about greek yogurt in place of the regular yogurt? Thanks!!

      You can use lowfat cream cheese, but when it comes to Greek yogurt it’s better to use non-fat plain yogurt because it is used to thin out the Salmon Spread. Greek yogurt is too thick and wouldn’t help much in thinning it out.

      I recently tested it with store bought smoked salmon for the first time and it came out almost as good as if I used my own smoked salmon. Give it a try and let me know if you agree.
