Salmon Spread the Love

Tastes & Treasures cookbook has a Smoked Salmon Pate on page 166. My family loves it, but also try this one for reduced fat and calories.
Salmon Spread the Love

One 8-oz. tub fat-free cream cheese, room temperature 

One 5-oz. can skinless boneless pink salmon in water, drained and finely flaked 

2 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss cheese 

1 1/2 tbsp. Dijonnaise

1 tbsp. minced onion 

1/2 tsp. lemon juice

In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, cheese wedges, Dijonnaise, and lemon juice. Mix thoroughly, until ingredients are completely integrated.
Add salmon and onion and stir thoroughly, until a very smooth consistency is reached. Refrigerate until ready to serve. (It tastes sooo good the next day!)

This recipe is truly incredible and not overly "fishy" at all. Enjoy its creamy deliciousness on English muffins, tortillas, crunchy veggies and so much more... Great recipe thanks to Hungry Girl.
