Barefoot Bloggers: Smoked Salmon Dip with a Tasty Glitch



It's barefoot Thursday!

Today is the day when Barefoot Bloggers around the blogosphere prepare a recipe from The Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten. Today's recipe was selected by Ashley of The Spicy Skillet . Ashley chose Smoked Salmon Dip.

Well, I shopped late last night at Whole Foods Market right after my son's night time baseball game under the lights. It was 9:45 and the store was closing so I rushed around like a mad woman to gather my ingredients. No surprise here, but when I went to make the dip I realized that I forgot the cream cheese...only the base of whole dip!

After a quick scan of the fridge I spied a package of Boursin Pepper Gournay Cheese-close enough! So with a couple of adjustments we were in business for the dip! My little glitch I thought turned our rather tasty.

Smoked Salmon Dip (desperately) adapted from The Barefoot Contessa

1 (5.2 ounce) package Boursin Pepper Gournay Cheese
1/3 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 teaspoons fresh dill
1/2 teaspoon fresh horseradish
3 ounces smoked salmon, minced

Place the cheese, sour cream, lemon juice, dill and horse radish in the bowl of a food processor; process until smooth. Add the salmon and pulse until combined. Serve with crudites or crackers.

Ooh. I bet the Boursin was good in it! I love that stuff--especially with the black pepper. I may have to try it again your way.

Nothing like thinking on your feet. It looks great! Did your son's team win?

This sounds really good. That Boursin Pepper Gournay Cheese sounds nteresting as well.

Sometimes the glitches make it all worth it! Looks and sounds fantastic. I just love Ina. Does the lady have a bad recipe? I haven't come across one yet.

i don't care for salmon, but if it's immersed in enough cheese, i just might be able to tolerate it. good save. :)

Sounds like one of those lucky mistakes that come out better than plan A.

This sounds like it would be really good spread on a fancy cucumber sandwich.

Ooooh, looks soooooo yummy! The kids are going out of town tomorrow--think The Hubs and I need to get together over this! BTW, did you hear about our campaign to e-mail Oprah about Uncle Lynn & Pop'rs? The SITStas even got in on the act! Please drop by and see what's happening in Aunt Julie's neck o' the woods!
