Dill with garlic and lemon combine to perfectly compliment salmon in our Dill Lover’s Dip Mix for Salmon. You add the salmon (grilled, poached, smoked, baked and canned all work). Mix salmon into the dip or use lox on top. Delicious on cocktail pumpernickel or rye bread either way. Pictured with lox on cocktail rye and white wine, it’s a lovely, sophisticated Christmas appetizer and has been a popular flavor combo for generations.
Use seasonal cookie cutters to cut out your favorite bread; toast bread and spread with dip (white toast cut in Christmas tree shapes pictured). Garnish with dill sprigs if desired. Note: Cutout sandwiches are not just for kids. Adults love these Christmas party appetizers too.
TIP: Cut bread before toasting. Use medium size cookie cutters so pieces are just big enough for 2-3 small bites. Mini-cutters are often too small for cutout details to be noticeable; large cutters make pieces too large to handle easily. Choose cutters that reflect the season (stars, snowmen, hearts, shamrocks, flags, footballs) or special interests (pets, train, airplane, sail boat, state, baby bootie); avoid those with narrow “tails” that make spreading difficult; examples:
Dry white wines and Lemon Drop martinis are delicious with this flavor profile.
