This is one of the easiest and most versatile recipes. Combine the fish and cream cheese for a quick spread for matzo, crackers or crudites. Add yogurt or sour cream to make it into a dip. Change the fish to trout or whitefish. Change the herb from dill to tarragon. Use fresh cooked or canned salmon. Jazz it up with capers. 'Nuff said? Use your taste buds and creativity and you almost can't go wrong.
