Smoked Salmon Dip

Marilyn Davidson


I actually did invent this one...I prefer a piece of smoked salmon or a can of it....if unavailable...use a can of salmon w/out bones & skin...serve on soft warmed bread. I used Von's bakery jalepeno bread warmed in foil in the oven...hope you all try yummy!

How to Make Smoked Salmon Dip


  • 1In a medium size bowl-mix on can drained salmon, the pesto, sliced sundried tomatoes (OK to use a bit of the oil from the tomatoes)*

    *I love the sun
    -dried tomatoes-so if you love them-feel free to add a few more!
  • 2Add the Boursin-crumbled up to mix in well
  • 3Add the liquid smoke if you aren't using smoked salmon-to taste-I prefer just a hint of smoke. Add the sour cream & mix well. You can taste at this point & add salt & pepper if you like.
  • 4Serve in a pretty bowl with a spoon/spreaders. Provide warm bread &/or crackers & a nice glass of wine. Enjoy!
