Northwest Smoked Salmon Dip


5 to 6 ounces hard smoked salmon
8 ounces cream cheese
1/3 cup sour cream
1 medium garlic clove, crushed
2 tablespoons green onion, finely minced
2 tablespoons fresh dill, minced
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1 pinch black pepper, freshly ground

Directions:

Place cream cheese in medium mixing bowl and let soften at room temperature. Cream together in a bowl (blend by hand, do not use a food processor): cream cheese, garlic, green onion and lemon juice. Add sour cream and blend together thoroughly. Finely shred smoked salmon and add to cream cheese mixture, blending until salmon appears as pink flecks and cheese is smooth. Stir in dill, cayenne and black peppers. Refrigerate 6 to 8 hours for best flavor blending.
