Normally I don’t use canned salmon, but in this case it’s really good, as long as you get the canned red
(or sockeye) salmon. Don’t get anything else – it’ll suck! But this can be played with and stretched and
has served us well at many a get together. For about 3 cups of spread, you’ll need:
2 6 oz. cans skinless boneless red salmon
2 8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened (you can use only 1 package of cream cheese if you want it
more salmon-y)
¾ C. mayonnaise, or to taste
¼ of a minced red onion
Grated zest of 1 lemon
2 Tb. drained small capers, optional
Put all of this in a bowl, mix it well, and chill it till about an hour before you want to serve it. Bring it to
room temp and serve with raw vegetables, crackers, and /or pita chips. Delightful with champagne!!
