ok..let's raise the bar a little bit before we start promoting squirty cheese and generic saltines.
get a small piece of good smoked salmon,4 oz should do it, i smoke my own so ymmv depending on what you get) and as this is a cream cheese thread, a block of reduced fat cr cheese, a 1/4c sour cream, some chopped capers and scallions, zest of 1/2 lemon..mix everything but the salmon together, then flake in small bits of salmon and blend..if there is any 'salmon juice' with the salmon, use a little of this too. add a little at a time and taste until you like it.
tastes great on carr's pepper water crackers or costco multi-grain crackers.
old standy..boule' (sourdough or similar) knorr swiss garden veg soup mix, mayo, sour cream and chopped spinach, drained completely, mix, let stand 30+ mins. cut out the inside of the round making small bread cuts to use as dip carrier, fill w/ spinach mixture.
