I grew up loving this Salmon Cream Cheese ball.  My mom has been making it for as long as I can remember, and I have been making my own version for about 8 years.  It's one of my favorite things, especially for Holiday parties.  This Salmon Cream Cheese ball is light, smoky, and so delicious, even non- fish lovers will like it.

To make this Salmon Cream Cheese ball you need:
8 oz. smoked Salmon
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 onion finely chopped
4 tsp. grated horseradish
4 tsp. liquid smoke
juice from 1/2 lemon
crushed pecans

1. Combine all ingredients except for the pecans in a large bowl.  I find it easiest to blend using a fork. 

2.  Spread the pecans on foil or parchment paper.

3.  Form a ball out of the salmon cream cheese mixture and roll in the pecans.

4.  Make sure you roll the ball so pecans are all the way around.  Then place on your serving plate, and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes before serving.

5.  Add any garnishes you like, (I like to use kale) and add crackers.

Note:  I love the flavor the liquid smoke adds to this Salmon Cream Cheese ball.  Sometimes I'll add much more for a more smoky flavor.  I also will add more horseradish if I want additional heat.  This recipe is pretty mild, and sure to please everyone.
