  • Active Time 15m
  • Total Time 15m

about 2 cups

Plain vodka can be substituted for the pepper-flavored vodka, but season generously with cracked pepper. Serve on crostini with freshly cracked pepper.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.


  • 1/2 pound 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.
