MAKES: TO SERV­INGS PREP TIME: MIN­UTES COOK TIME: HOURS A fes­tive cel­e­bra­tion de­mands a spe­cial ap­pe­tizer, and this pâté is the right mix of lux­ury and ease. Gravlax is a cured salmon, usu­ally avail­able in the freezer sec­tion. No need to thaw it first: It chops up more evenly when it’s a bit frozen.

2 tsp (10 mL) Di­jon mus­tard

Zest of 2 lemons

200 g sliced gravlax or smoked salmon 2 tbsp (25 mL) chopped fresh dill

Thinly sliced dark rye

Plain crack­ers

Veg­eta­bles, such as en­dive


1. Com­bine cream cheese, sour cream, Di­jon mus­tard and lemon zest in a food pro­ces­sor; pulse to com­bine well. Add gravlax; pulse un­til al­most smooth.
