From the Kitchen - Outside the Nest

Salmon Spread

I'm sharing one of my favorite spreads today.
This can be made with salmon, tuna, shrimp, crab; the sky's the limit.

Start with plain low fat cream cheese spread and add a squiggle of fat free mayonnaise.

Lemon juice

Dill weed

Onion and garlic powder.

And, the star of the show, salmon.

Mix it all together,

and serve it up. I made my Parmesan Pesto loaf, but French bread, or other kinds can be used.
This is tasty as a sandwich spread as well.

And, it tastes great on your favorite crackers.
All in all, is it ever good.
Happy Saturday

Salmon Spread

1 (5 oz) can skinless, boneless salmon
3 oz. reduced fat cream cheese spread
1 Tbsp. fat free mayonnaise
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tsp dill weed
1/2 Tsp onion powder
1/2 Tsp garlic powder

Drain juice from salmon. Mix cream cheese spread, mayonnaise, lemon juice, onion powder and garlic powder together. Fold in salmon. Chill several hours or overnight to allow flavors to blend. Serve on sliced French bread or crackers.
Note: can use tuna, chopped shrimp, or flaked crab in place of salmon
