I made this for friends and we all loved it. I think the success has to do with the quality of the salmon you use. So easy and quick.

This is wonderful by itself but I add a TBS or two of prepared horseradish to give it some zip (similar to an old Frugal Gourmet recipe). I have used it in phyllo triangles and baked it and it's very good that way, but be sure not to bake it too long or it gets messy. I would consider this a "spread" though, not a "dip".

Thought this spread was fantastic. Maybe I would cut back on the dill a little bit. But otherwise it made a great spread for the mini rye crackers we got from Trader Joes and we also used the leftover on everything bagels.

This was an easy, tasty appetizer. Not amazing, but good. I used whipped cream cheese which helped with the texture some of the reviewers mentioned below. Was able to easily dip with a Wheat Thin.

I made this for a crowd of 100 people. To save money, I used canned salmon in the food processor and then add some fresh salmon in after processing and it was great. A huge hit, but economical.

I loved this recipe! I made this exactly as written, using hot smoked salmon as opposed to cold smoked, and served it with melba toasts and fresh veggies. It's a pretty thick dip, so it needs a hearty cracker like melba. I will make it again.

Thought the dip turned out just ok. After making it I thought it was missing something, so I added some capers. Wasn't really a good "dipping" dip. It is better if you pipe it on some crackers and serve it that way. Will not make it again.
