Smoked Salmon & Dill Dip (Vegan)

This salmon dip could be added to the NYT list of "Small Luxuries for the New Year's Eve Table."

The basic recipe is from Meghan Markle’s the tig lifestyle blog. She’s dating Price Harry of Great Britain, and it’s rumored to be quite “serious.”


He’ll love her salmon dish - and wouldn’t even notice that the cream cheese in Meghan's recipe was switched out for Miyoko's Double Cream Chive vegan spread in this one. 


Prep in five minutes; chill for an hour; and you'll have a dish fit for royalty to serve your family or guests this holiday eve.

I try out these recipes so you don't have to (and modify them for Paleo where possible). The rating will reflect my opinion of the final result in terms of taste, ease of preparation, nutrition, and sometimes, cost.
