When I saw this recipe on goop I just had to give it a try. Easy to make and easy to eat, what more could you ask for!
8 oz cream cheese at room temperature *
1/2 cup of crème fraîche
1 tbsp of lemon zest, finely grated
juice of 1/2 a lemon
2 scallions, finely chopped
4 oz of smoked salmon, finely chopped
cracked black pepper
1. Using a stand mixer, a hand-held mixer, or a whisk, beat cream cheese until it is smooth and fluffy (about 2 minutes). *
2. Fold in remaining ingredients and season with cracked black pepper.
3. Garnish dip with some chopped scallions.
goop suggests serving this dip with potato chips and champagne.
*NOTE: I used Philly whipped cream cheese instead of regular cream cheese and omitted step 1.
