Smoked Salmon Spread

A splash of pepper-flavored vodka gives this salmon spread a sophisticated flair. If you like, use plain vodka instead but be sure to season generously with freshly cracked pepper before serving. Smoothly pureed nonfat cottage cheese replaces cream cheese and sour cream to cut the fat by about 80 percent.

Serves 16

Prep Time 15 min

Total Time 45 min.


  • 8 ounces smoked salmon
  • 1 1/2 cups nonfat cottage cheese
  • 3 tablespoon pepper-flavored vodka, such as Absolut Peppar
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Cut half the salmon into chunks. Dice the remaining salmon. Place cottage cheese in a fine-mesh sieve and press on it to remove excess moisture. Transfer the cottage cheese to a food processor. Add the salmon chunks, vodka, lemon juice, mustard and horseradish. Process until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and fold in the diced salmon. Refrigerate until chilled.
