Instructions

  • In a small to medium bowl, add the creme fraiche, cream cheese, capers, shallot, lemon juice, horseradish, smoked salmon, dill, Italian parsley and a few turns of freshly ground pepper; give it a good mix and taste. Adjust the seasoning to your liking. I ended up adding a bit more black pepper and a teeny pinch of salt. Garnish with an extra sprinkling of minced dill if you like.
  • Serve with cucumber slices, ritz crackers, radishes and bell peppers. Other items you could serve them with: bagel chips, pita chips, slices of lavash or pumpernickel crackers.
