How is everyone doing? Is it me or did this week go by slowwwwwly. I am feeling a bit drained and looking forward to the weekend to get some rest. I love it when the weather is sunny, with clear skies. This always puts me in the mood for dips and a glass of wine. This Smoked Salmon Goat Cheese Dip is my first dip for this month and how refreshing and bursting with flavors it is.
I used fresh salmon for this dip I marinated it with smoked paprika spice and olive oil for 2 hours. Some have used canned salmon to prepare this dip, for me, I think that fresh salmon makes the difference in taste. I also combined goat cheese with a milder taste and combined it with smooth creamy cheese. I have not used cream cheese, for this dip but a similar creamy cheese that I found in the market. Of course, I added my favorite herb dill which was definitely a must for this dip, and just parsley. Last but not least cucumber is the veggie that gives this dip that super refreshing taste.
Friday afternoon, so it’s time to close the computer and head to the kitchen, I’m baking a cake….:)
Have a great weekend everyone!!
Look out for the Behind the Greek Apron Episode 4 coming soon!! 🙂
