- 36 small red potatoes (about 1-1/2 pounds)
- 1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese, cubed
- 2 packages (3 ounces each) smoked salmon or lox
- 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
- 2 teaspoons dill weed
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- Fresh dill sprigs
- Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Cook, covered, for 15-20 minutes or until tender.
- Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine the cream cheese, salmon, onion, dill, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Cover and process until smooth; set aside.
- Drain potatoes and immediately place in ice water. Drain and pat dry with paper towels. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each potato to allow it to sit flat. With a melon baller, scoop out a small amount of potato (discard or save for another use).
- Pipe or spoon salmon mixture into potatoes. Garnish with dill sprigs. Yield: 3 dozen.

"Skip the potatoes! They added nothing to the recipe, but the filling was delicious! It is much better as a spread with crackers."
