Absolutely striking as Dilled Smoked Salmon Spread (pictured with the salmon mixed into the dip, on rye toast pumpkin shaped cut outs). Substitute smoked trout, bluefish or whitefish for a whole new delicious experience. Note: Cutout sandwiches are not just for kids. Adults love these fall 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 (hearts, shamrocks, flags) or special interests (pets, train, airplane, sail boat, state, baby bootie); avoid those with narrow “tails” that make spreading difficult; examples:
Canapés where cocktail rye is spread with just the dip and lox slices are placed on top are stunning, not to mention delicious. They’re pictured as an anniversary party appetizer. Easiest of all, mix whatever kind of salmon you have in with the dip and let guests decide how much they want to spread on crackers (pictured).
The dill and salmon flavor combo has been popular for generations. So whether you’re having a casual fall party, a special occasion party or just friends over, this versatile, tasty dip is just what you need.
MORE ON HOW TO SERVE THIS DIP:
Bagel Spread: Use it to replace the usual lox and schmear for Dilled Salmon Bagels; accompany with a dry white wine for brunch (pictured). Add capers and red onion slices if desired.
Salad Dressing: Use this with just mayo for Dilled Dressing. Pictured as a dressing for Dilled Tuna Macaroni Salad. Also great in place of mayo in Dilled Tuna Salad for sandwiches and most any sandwich that includes Mediterranean ingredients, think turkey with roasted red peppers, thinly sliced red onions, and cheese. Easy ideas for parties or buffets.
