Plain vodka can be substituted for the pepper-flavored vodka, but season generously with cracked pepper. Serve on crostini with freshly cracked pepper.
Makes about 2 cups
8 ounces smoked salmon
1 1/2 cups nonfat cottage cheese
3 tablespoons pepper-flavored vodka, such as Absolut Peppar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
Cut half of the salmon into chunks. Dice the remaining salmon. Place cottage cheese in a fine-mesh sieve and press on it to remove excess moisture. Transfer the cottage cheese to a food processor. Add the salmon chunks, vodka, lemon juice, mustard and horseradish. Process until smooth. Transfer the mixture to bowl and fold in the diced salmon. Refrigerate until chilled.
TipsCover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
