Smoked Salmon Dip

Last week for girl's night I wanted to make an appetizer (since I hadn't made one in a while) and thought it would be nice to use a smoked salmon my mom had given me a couple weeks ago. I love putting smoked salmon on a nice plate with crackers for a simple appetizer, but thought it might be nice to try to put together a dip that was FAT FREE! I found this smoked salmon dip and saw that it was sour cream based (most dips I find are cream cheese based and I am not a huge fan of non-fat cream cheese because of the change in texture, but usually I can not tell the difference between regular and fat-free sour cream when mixed with other ingredients). Anyhow, this dip was a hit and really simple to make! Enjoy:)

Smoked Salmon Dip
from Food Network

1 pint (2 cups) fat free sour cream
1 tbsp double concentrate tomatoe paste
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. drained capers
1/2 medium red onion (chopped)
1/4 lb. smoked salmon (I ended up using 3/4 lb! I love dips that have a little bit more consistency, so adding more made it more hearty and delcious)
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper

1. In a medium bowl mix the first 3 ingredients

2. After combined, stir in the capers and conions

3. Fold in the salmon, season with salt and pepper and serve!
