Easy, Easy, Easy!
Okay, this is one for the last minute company and the impromptu cocktail parties! It takes so little effort to prepare. It’s what cooking in high heels is all about. Less time in the kitchen, more time for the glam.
1/4 cup of mayo (vegan mayo works just as well
4 ounce cream cheese( I use a dairy free cream cheese Violife)
1 tablespoon of capers rinsed (always keep these in the fridge)
1 tablespoon of diced red onion (toss these in the food processor or chopper to make it quick)
2 teaspoons of lemon juice
Dash of Cayenne pepper
4 ounces of smoked salmon (you can find this in the deli section of your local grocery store; Trader Joe’s has the best and Aldi is a close second)
Fresh parsley or Dill (you can pick this up in a small package for about 1.99 in the produce section
Bagel chips for serving
In a food processor, combine mayonnaise, cream cheese, capers, red onion, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and 2 ounces smoked salmon. Process until smooth, about 20 seconds. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in remaining 2 ounces smoked salmon. Top with fresh parsley or Dill if desired and serve with bagel chips. I like to add a dash or two of the seasoning The Everything Bagel.
