This simple appetizer recipe is quick to assemble and best of all it eliminates the problems of dips and double dipping at a party buffet.
I made a simple cream cheese spread using low-fat cream cheese, minced red onion for aromatic surprise, a bit of lemon juice for tartness, a few tablespoons of heavy cream for, well, creaminess, generous amount of pepper for bite and just a pinch of salt to bring the flavors up. Processing in a mini-processor made the flavors meld and easy to pipe.
I piped the cream cheese mixture, using a large star tip, onto endive and Belgian endive leaves. Then I topped the cream cheese with strips of smoked salmon (lox) and garnished them with finely chopped dill.
Party on the table and in the mouth! Easy, fast and pleasing. And NO double dipping to worry about!
