This is one of those recipes that almost takes longer to say – “Smoked Salmon Boursin Cheese Spread!” – than it does to make. THAT is how easy it is. It’s a perfect easy appetizer to spread on crackers or celery sticks or (if you want to be all fancy) endive leaves. It’s also a perfect tiny tiny dinner when you have had a big lunch and just want a little something with a glass of wine at the end of a long hard day. It takes 2 minutes and 2 ingredients – well, 3 if you count the garnish – and I looooooove it.You need a few pieces of smoked salmon. My supermarket sells what they call smoked salmon ends – little pieces that are left over from when they trim the giant pieces of smoked salmon that you buy when you are having a BIG old party – and those are perfect for this. You can also buy packaged small portions of smoked salmon, usually by the seafood section or in the deli section.
You also need a package of the pepper version of Boursin cheese. I have such fond childhood memories of this cheese – my mama always brought it out for parties alongside the million other goodies she was whipping up, and I have loved it through the years.
Bring the cheese and the salmon to room temperature, and pop them both in the food processor. Let it rip until everything is smooth and blended. Now spoon it into a pretty dish and sprinkle it with chives, and you are done.
Seriously. You’re done. Break out the endive and the wine and get to nibbling!Print
