Ingredients

  • 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. Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine the cream cheese, salmon, onion, dill, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Cover and process until smooth; set aside.
