8 oz cream cheese, softened
½ cup (4 oz) Greek yogurt (or mayonnaise)
¼ cup finely chopped bell peppers (green/red/yellow/orange are all great for adding color)
¼ cup finely chopped green onions (or optionally chives)
6-8 oz boneless cooked or smoked salmon (any cooked, or canned and drained, salmon will do; if using smoked salmon, slightly chopping it may be necessary before use)
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tsp prepared wasabi (or horseradish)
Dipping items of choice, such as crackers, chips, bagels, French baguette, garlic bread, carrot sticks, celery sticks, cucumber sticks, radishes, etc.
