In honor of all those beautiful table settings I thought this dip would be appropriate. Make sure to use the whipped cream cheese in tubs. It will give this dip a smoother texture. If the dip seems salty then just serve with unsalted crackers. Bon Appetit, March 2001.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 ounces whipped cream cheese (at room temperature)
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon, thinly sliced, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped, divided
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 ounces red salmon roe
  • pumpernickel rounds or rye cocktail bread

  1. Using rubber spatula, mash whipped cream cheese and milk in medium bowl to blend.
  2. Fold in salmon and 1 tablespoon chives.

  4. Gently fold in caviar.
