This smoked salmon dip is so creamy and delicious! With the smoked salmon flavor taking the stage followed by a hint of lemon and dill, this dip is SOO GOOD!
I have bought salmon dip from the store and not only is it super expensive but it only has a tiny bit of salmon flavor! This dip is SO much better and you can taste the smoked salmon so strongly in every single bite! Plus, when you combine it with some tangy cream cheese and some lemon, garlic, and dill… well… It doesn’t get much better!
I especially love this dip because you can use it on so many occasions! It’s fancy enough to use at a holiday dinner as an appetizer. Or, you can whip it up for yourself and put it on some crackers, a crostini, or even a toasted bagel at breakfast. This dip is insanely delicious! In fact, because it only takes 5 minutes to whip up, I bet that you make it all the time! I know that I do. Enjoy!
