Appetizer Spreads


  • 2 tb Flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 tb Fresh tarragon leaves
  • 1 2-inch piece red onion
  • 1 c Cooked meat (chicken; veal, beef or fish)
  • 1 ts Lemon zest
  • 1 ts Lemon juice
  • 6 tb Unsalted butter
  • 1 ts Fine sea salt; or to taste
  • 1 ts Freshly ground black pepper; or to taste


In a food processor or blender, process ingredients until finely pureed and well blended. Taste, adjust seasoning, pack into ramekins and chill. Serve with toast or crackers.
NOTES : Serves 8 as an appetizer, 3 per person. These are good served with a dab of honey mustard and a leaf of fresh tarragon as a garnish. Prep time assumes you have cooked meat on hand. Reprinted in The Sacramento Bee 9/17/97. Recipe by: Home Chef Essential Cooking Series
