Summer isn’t over yet! If you are throwing a Labor Day Weekend celebration, you might consider serving caviar dip. It is simple and delicious – quite the crowd pleaser. We first discovered this wonderful recipe in Ina Garten’s ‘Barefoot Contessa Parties’ cookbook. It is fabulous served with potato chips, fresh vegetables or toast.
8 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons freshly minced dill, plus sprigs for garnish
1 minced scallion (white and green parts)
1 tablespoon milk, half-and-half or cream
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
4 ounces Seattle Caviar Chum Salmon Ikura
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the cream cheese until smooth. With the mixer on medium speed add the sour cream, lemon juice, dill, scallion, milk salt and pepper. With a rubber spatula, fold in threequarters of the salmon caviar. Spoon the dip into a bowl and garnish with the remaining salmon caviar and sprigs of fresh dill. Serve with chips, fresh vegetables or toasts and enjoy! This delightful treat won’t last long.
