Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Cut half of the salmon into chunks.
  2. Dice the remaining salmon.
  3. Place cottage cheese in a fine-mesh sieve and press on it to remove excess moisture.
  4. Transfer the cottage cheese to a food processor.
  5. Add the salmon chunks, vodka, lemon juice, mustard and horseradish.
  6. Process until smooth.
  7. Transfer the mixture to bowl and fold in the diced salmon.
  8. Refrigerate until chilled. [2]
  9. Serve on crostini with freshly cracked pepper.
  10. Makes a terrific pasta sauce as well. Add red pepper flakes when tossing with hot pasta. Or serve chilled as a pasta salad, with the addition of minced veggies (great way to empty out the fridge!)

Notes Edit

  1. Plain vodka can be substituted for the pepper-flavored vodka, but season generously with cracked pepper.
  2. Make ahead tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
