A great smoked salmon cheese ball covered with a colorful blend of parsley, chopped almonds and crushed pretzels. Always a big hit at parties and pot lucks! Note: Cook time is chill time.

I made this a couple times for family gatherings back at Christmas. (And it looks like I should have reviewed it in January for the Craze-E Contest. :oops: Sorry!) It was a huge hit! My sister was totally thrilled because it reminded her of the salmon dip our great-uncle used to make. I just made it again for the Ayyam-i-Ha party I'm having tomorrow. I've gone vegetarian in the meanwhile and making this was quite a temptation! We'll see if I succumb at the party tomorrow. lol. This dish is really delicious and so easy to make. Thank you!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove skin and bones from salmon. Combine all ingredients (except nuts, parsley and pretzels) in a bowl. Mix well with a fork. Form into a half round ball. Wrap with plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours. Mix nuts, parsley and crushed pretzels together, then put on top of chilled ball, pressing lightly to adhere. Serve with Ritz crackers & enjoy!
