I hope you had a nice weekend! It’s always hard to believe it when weekends are over! They go so fast.

I love appetizers and dips! So naturally, one of my favorite things about family get togethers and holiday parties is the appetizers. Today I’m sharing a quick, throw it together appetizer that you can make ahead of time or in the last few minutes before guests arrive.

This Smoked Salmon Dip is so easy and it’s a great alternative to doing a smoked salmon platter, which can take quite a bit of time to arrange. Smoked Salmon Dip is easy and delicious. Serve it with crostini, veggies, or crackers.

While this dip isn’t necessarily light, I used lighter versions of the cream cheese and sour cream so that I could have a few extra servings

Start by bringing 8 oz of cream cheese to room temperature. I usually set the block of cream cheese on the kitchen counter for about 1 hour or so.

In the bowl of your stand mixer, using the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese for 30 seconds until it is lightly whipped.

Add the sour cream, lemon juice, horseradish, salt, pepper, and fresh dill. Beat until combined.

Then, using a fork, flake the smoked salmon so that it will break up easily in the dip. Add the flaked salmon to the cream cheese mixture and beat the dip for just a second until the salmon is incorporated.

Total Time: 10 minutes

Smoked Salmon Dip is the perfect party appetizer, tailgate dip, or brunch spread. This dip takes less than 10 minutes to make!

Ingredients

  • 1 8 oz block light cream cheese
  • ½ cup light sour cream
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 2 tsp horseradish (not the prepared mayo version)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp fresh dill (halve this if you aren’t crazy about dill)
  • 4 oz smoked salmon

Instructions

  1. Start by bringing 8 oz of cream cheese to room temperature. I usually set the block of cream cheese on the kitchen counter for about 1 hour or so.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer, using the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese for 30 seconds until it is lightly whipped.
  3. Add the sour cream, lemon juice, horseradish, salt, pepper, and fresh dill. Beat until combined.
  4. Then, using a fork, flake the smoked salmon so that it will break up easily in the dip. Add the flaked salmon to the cream cheese mixture and beat the dip for just a second until the salmon is incorporated.
  5. Serve the dip with crostini, celery and carrots, or bagel chips.
  6. To make the crostini, I slice a baguette and drizzle it with olive oil. Broil the bread for 1-2 minutes until golden, then serve. Easy!

Notes

You can substitute full fat cream cheese and sour cream without issue. Greek yogurt can also be swapped for the sour cream.

    Hey Bri! I made your Smoked Salmon Dip for a wine and cheese this past weekend and it was a hit. I’ll definitely make it again because it was not only delicious, but easy! Thank you!

    Tabasco sauce. Does it have to be that for spiciness or will Sriracha work as well? I ll trust your answer here as with the capers question below I don t like them but it sounds like they do add to the recipe without standing out so they will be included in my dip! Thanks!
