We started our delicious New Year’s eve feast with this sumptuous appetizer. I originally wanted to use endive leaves, as they are in season. After looking high and low, all around town and to no avail, I settled for baby lettuce leaves. It worked just as well. Here’s what you’ll need:

250g Philadelphia cream cheese

2 tbsp of milk

1 tbsp dill + more for presentation

1 tbsp chives, finely chopped

8 smoked salmon slices

8 baby lettuce leaves

20g of caviar

Put it together

1) Wash the lettuce leaves and pat dry with a paper towel

2) In a food processor, whip the cheese, dill, chives and milk for about 1-2 minutes

3) Lay out the lettuce leaves on a decorative plate

    An amazing blend of flavors and textures, the salmon & caviar combination is always a winner, especially with a nice rosé champagne.

    I tend to prefer the flavor and consistency of crème fraîche over cream cheese, but either way, this dish is a real treat!

    Is that lettuce? I’d forgotten what salad looked like after existing solely on turkey for the last few days…

    smoked salmon makes for such a perfect appetizer! I have lots of creme fraiche and labne in my fridge, so I might replace the cream cheese with a mix of the two and make this for new years!

    I love smoked salmon. I have to try this one. My son love smoked salmon too. May be I can get him to eat lettuce. By the way, Happy New Year!
