Blogger Dot Dorsner shares her Halloween spin on an adult treat as part of the Care.com Interview Series

Every year, Nancy "Dot" Dorsner takes a break from her blog, Dabbled, to invite friends and family for a big Halloween Party, and every year she makes a point to do some really fun and spooky food. This salmon 'brain' dip is a great creepy looking appetizer that is really popular with both kids and adults, and of course, with the zombies!

Degree of Difficulty: Easy


  • 1 package Cream or Neufchâtel cheese - leave a room temperature to soften.
  • 1 6-8oz piece of salmon, cooked (Just sprinkle with salt & pepper, and cook in whatever manner you want. You could grill it, or put in under the broiler, or cook it stove top)
  • 2 Tablespoons Sour Cream
  • Optional: Sriracha sauce, or Tabasco, to taste.
  • Lemon juice

Check out Dot's blog for the full tutorial for this fantastic and creepy dip!
