Salmon Dip

As it is known, my husband lives for salmon fishing. So, when he goes fishing and catches fish, another thing I make that the family loves is salmon dip. Put it on Ritz crackers or any other cracker and it makes a wonderful snack. Here is my recipe:

Salmon Dip

1 lb smoked salmon or 1 16 oz can of salmon (if you do not have freshed smoked salmon available)
1 6 oz package cream cheese
2 Tbsp sour cream
2 Tbsp mayonnaise
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (can be omitted if you don't like the extra kick)
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp chopped parsley
1/4 tsp garlic salt

Chop smoked salmon finely or drain can of salmon. Add all ingredients to a bowl or food processor. Mix until smooth. (use a bowl if you want your dip chunky, use a food processor if you want your dip smooth) Refrigerate till served.
*You may omit the garlic salt and use 1/2 clove minced fresh garlic instead if desired*
*You can also add another 6 oz cream cheese if you want it stiffer in case you want to make a salmon dip ball, to use for parties; makes it easier to mold for a salmon dip ball*

This is awesome on crackers, bagels, or make it into a festive ball for parties (that's another post as we get closer to the holidays, when I bring on all the holiday treats and tips and tricks)
