"This recipe evolved from boredom with tuna salad and from a desire to create something more healthful than another mayonnaise-based sandwich filling," Tom Jenner writes. "I never particularly cared for smoked baby clams until I tried them this way. Personally I use homemade yogurt cheese instead of cream cheese, though the two are very similar in flavor and texture."
