Smoked Salmon Spread

Smoked Salmon Spread
Plain vodka can be substituted for the pepper-flavored vodka, but season generously with cracked pepper. Serve on crostini with freshly cracked pepper.

Makes about 2 cups

8 oz. smoked salmon
1 1/2 cups nonfat cottage cheese
3 tbsp pepper-flavored vodka, such as Absolut Peppar
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp prepared horseradish


Cut half of 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 bowl and fold in the diced salmon. Refrigerate until chilled.

Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
