This is superb! I had made some smoked salmon that was entirely too salty and this was a great way to use it (I didn't add any more salt). Exceptional flavors. And more dill doesn't hurt either!!

I found this recipe at Food Network and had to try it. Good stuff. You could dip anything in a recipe with a base of cream cheese and sour cream. Thanks for posting!

This recipe caught my eye because the write up on the internet claimed it used ingredients you have around the house. I don't have smoked salmon nor fresh dill laying around the house so I had to substitute. I used a 5oz can of skinless boneless salmon. I drained it well and flaked it in to a bowl. I added a few drops of liquid smoke and let it set for about an hour. I used 1/2tsp of dill weed in place of the fresh dill. I added 1/2tsp smoked paprika and a few drops of Frank's hot sauce to add a little bite. The horseradish is a nice touch. It went over very well. I'll go by the recipe the next time I smoke a salmon and fresh dill is available.

Not sure how you say Yum in Scandinavian - but this was yum! Very simple to make and was great with crackers. I added a little more horseradish just because I really like the zing. Thanks cookiedog for a nice treat. Made by a fellow Unruly Under the Influence for ZWT6.

Creamy, rich tasting and with just that little bit of zip from the horseradish floating around in the background. I appreciated there not being any onion in this as raw onion is one of the few food items I just can't bare to eat and it features in so many dip and salad recipes. I used the reduced fat versions of both the cream cheese and sour cream to allow most of the fat in the dip to be from the healthy fats in the smoked salmon. I had this spread on some rice cakes for my lunch. Made for Zee Zany Zesty Cookz for ZWT6.

I am in love with this spread. Seriously. Made it exactly how it is listed. It's even better the longer it sits in the fridge; the flavors mingle together really well. Now my mouth is watering...

Absolutely beautiful in color, taste, and treat. After a long hot day, this was so good to sit down and enjoy. I used Nova Scotia thinly sliced smoked salmon, which sat beautifully on cucumbers, capers, red onions and dill. I added fresh horseradish, and wonderfully homemade cream cheese. Mine sat for the day, until evening when all the flavors had come together, and it was a bite from heaven. Thank you so much, cookiedog! Made for *ZWT4* June 2008.
