A simple smoked salmon dip recipe requires only a food processor. Put 8 ounces of softened cream cheese into the processor, and run the machine until the cream cheese softens completely.
Add in 6 ounces of chopped smoked salmon and 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, and then add whatever ingredients you want to add flavor. One recipe includes 1/4 cup of capers, 3 dashes of Worcestershire sauce, a quick squeeze of fresh lemon juice, 3 drops of hot pepper sauce, 2 tablespoons of chopped green onion and 1 1/2 teaspoons of chopped fresh dill. Run the food processor until the mixture has a uniformly smooth and creamy texture. This recipe yields 10 servings.
Alternatively, use mayonnaise as the accompaniment to cream cheese in the base instead of heavy whipping cream. After the dip is done, cover it and place it in the refrigerator for a minimum of two hours. This allows the flavors in the dip to blend. When you're ready to serve, a number of options are at your disposal. Celery sticks, tortilla chips, saltines, pieces of French bread, pretzel rods or any other dipping item works. When hosting a party, set out a variety of these items to let people be creative with the dip.
