Quick and easy to prepare! Loved the flavors and when I make something with smoked salmon I really want it to shine through. It was a big hit! For something from Cooking Light it truly tasted like a guilty pleasure. Would make this again and again. Served with crackers as a snack while watching a football game.

This recipie was very good and everyone enjoyed it at my fourth of July party. It was quick and easy to make, once you had all the ingredients and i served it with wheat and sesame seed water crackers. Some quick notes... prepared smoked salmon was very hard to find. I went to four different food stores before finally finding it at Costco for $14.99 a lb! It was smoked and baked with black peppercorn on one side, which worked out just fine. Next time, I will try smoking my own salmon.

The wonderful flavor of smoked salmon really shines in this recipe. I actually think it would still be really tasty without quite so much salmon. Would be great for company.

This recipe definately calls for using the right ingredients and I don't see how you could deviate from it and still get a great taste. My biggest problem was smoking the salmon and after seeing the price in the market I bought a few frozen ones from Walmart that were actually wild caught (not in China!) and tried to smoke it on a "stove top" smoker. Not a good idea. Definately smoke it on the grill yourself to save money. My salmon didn't come out as smokey, consequnetly, but with the othre ingredients it was still really good. I would make it again for sure and hope for a more smokey flavor on the grill. I also used fresh lemons from my lemon tree and fresh garden chives.

This was too much like tuna sandwich filling for an appetizer.

Great recipe and smoking it yourself definitely saves money. I left out the cardamon as my family really dislikes it but I added one half of a fresh jalapeno pepper finely chopped for a bit of kick.

Not too impressed. The cardamom flavor didn't come through. The chives overwhelmed everything else. And it's a lot of smoked salmon to buy for a dip that isn't blowing off my socks.

I haven't made this yet, but it sounds absolutely fantastic. I am a huge salmon fan though. Http://PrintableCouponsandDeals.com for all your coupon needs!
