What salmon do I use for smoked salmon dip?
Sliced smoked salmon is the most common type used in this style of salmon dip. It's packaged in thin flat slices and commonly referred to as 'lox'. It's very rich, salty, and a little goes a long way.
In fact, for this recipe, you'll want to taste the dip before adding any salt to it, as it may be unnecessary.
How to make salmon dip
- Blend softened cream cheese, Greek yogurt, horseradish, lemon juice, pepper, salt, and Worcestershire together in a bowl.
- Fold in the smoked salmon and dill.
- Serve immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container up to 5 days.
How to serve smoked salmon on a budget
If you serve sliced, smoked salmon on a platter to party guests, those slices disappear in no time, and the dollars add up quickly. This smoked salmon dip is the ticket!
If you're entertaining on a budget, you can buy smoked salmon in bulk, freeze it in smaller portions, thaw as needed, and create elegant party dips like this.
When it's party time, break out the portioned salmon to make this dip and serve it on a tray with crackers, bread, and vegetables.
This way, you cover a lot more ground with less cost.
