Smoked Salmon Dip

This recipe is from the Wines family cookbook, well at least the idea.  The original had miracle whip, chives, and used canned salmon. Nope. Nope. Nope.
When I lived out in Seattle, I had easy access to smoked salmon.  One of my favorite breakfasts was smoked salmon cream cheese dip on a bagel.  This is perfect for a party or a brunch.  Hope you enjoy.
