Smoky Salmon Dip

When the weekend hits I go appetizer and snack crazy.  B and I have been carb, dairy and sugar free for a few weeks but Saturdays is our cheat day.  Needless to say, Saturday is now my FAVORITE day.  I was perusing our pantry and decided to make this easy breezy smoky salmon dip.  As you can see the ingredients are things you probably have on hand:
  • 8 oz  cream cheese block
  •  onions or scallions (chopped)
  •  and a 15oz can of salmon.  
  • To give it a smokey flavor you might need to run to the store and buy liquid smoke, but all you will need is 1 teaspoon. 
  • Lastly add salt and pepper to taste.
Once you have your ingredients,  mix them all in a bowl or a food processor.  I started in a bowl but our Ninja made the dip a little creamier and smoother. You can chill it or eat it right away.  We  topped ours with a little paprika and some Fritos (the scoop ones).  Like I said, we were indulging.  I hadn't had Fritos since I was in elementary school and boy were they good, I'm not going to lie.  But to make this more of a grown up dip or to class it up a bit, you can serve it with crackers on a very pretty bowl. 
Sometimes, it's all about the presentation.
What are you going to indulge on this weekend?

That looks good. I will have to look for that canned salmon. I opened a can once and couldn't figure out how to clean up the skin and tiny bones. Maybe that can is better? Kevin would really love this dip. I plan on having hummus and veggies for the weekend. Kevin is treating us to our favorite masseuse to come over for the day, on Sunday. It's something we do maybe once a year. A true luxury, but worth every penny.
