Easy Salmon, Dill and Cream Cheese Spread

READY IN: 6hrs
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

Serve this wonderful spread on top of Ritz crackers, I serve this on small oven-baked crispy crostini, that has been brushed with garlic butter before baking....the crostini can be baked even a day ahead, you can even use small dried bagel rounds. This makes approximately 2 cups, but you can easily double the recipe to serve a big crowd. Plan ahead the mixture has to chill for a minimum of 6 hours or up to 24 hours before serving. If you have any leftover spread, it will freeze well.
