Definitely double the salmon and half the salt. Really great on "Everything" flavored Pretzel Crisps...tastes like salmon and cream cheese bagels! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was great. I doubled the salmon. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband thought it was fabulous on a cracker, but he really wanted a piece of baguette (to balance as he would say). I enjoyed it with broccoli. as it was the only thing close I had to a crudite! (learned a new word today!) I believe this would be a great party pleaser. Very cheesy -- so expect it based on its ingredients, dont rate the recipe low because of it! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I've purchased many salmon dips and mousses over the years. My previous favorite is $9 for a 5 oz. container. I wanted to serve it for a party and definitely needed more than 5 oz. so it was time to make it. I chose this recipe based on ingredients and reviews and I love it!!! It's a great recipe and 100% better than any salmon dip I've ever bought even freshly made from gourmet deli's. I wondered about the amount of salmon because of the one bad review saying it lacked flavor - WHAT? Doubled the salmon and only tasted sour cream? NOT Possible - either a fake review or fake smoked salmon! It's a tasty & lively recipe. Only change I'd make is to 1/2 (or less) the salt. It was a bit too salty for me and unnecessary. It's excellent with both veggies and crackers. It was a huge hit - everyone loved it item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was amazing! Will be making again for sure with our fresh smoked Alaskan salmon! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Terrible recipe. Made it special for a New Year's party. Used twice the amount of salmon called for and still tasted like tart sour cream. No salmon flavor at all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious whether you make your own personal tweaks or strictly follow the recipe. If you are lucky enough to live in the Rocky Mountain area, try this with the peach wood smoked salmon sold at area Whole Foods there. The sweet/smokey/salty flavors are outstanding. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I brought some smoked salmon home from Alaska and have made it 3 times so far for parties. There was not a smidgen of it left in the bowl to bring home each and every time. Compliments galore. It's delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe. I made it exactly as the recipe called for. My husband keep coming back for more. Will definitely make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
