This is an excellent dish, so easy to fix & we did not find it salty at all. I made a full recipe as written except that my salmon was grilled the nite b4, so I skipped prep step 3. What did surprise us was the lox flavor seemed missing, perhaps masked by being sauteed w/the onion. We loved it & it will be repeated without the mixed lox & onion saute to see if that allows the lox flavor to be more pronounced. Even if not, it would be terrific w/fresh salmon alone. Every scrap of this was gone in less than 24 hrs & DH even ate it for breakfast! Thx for sharing this keeper w/us.

I wandered onto Recipezaar less than a year ago, looking for a lentil soup recipe. I'm pretty sure I haven't left the computer since then...I've been completely sucked in by this site! Of course, I do take the occasional break to actually cook the recipes I find. When I'm not at my computer or in the kitchen, I'm working toward my PhD in clinical psychology from Kent State. I also work as a therapist at the campus clinic, teach a class (Social Psychology this semester), and work as a research assistant. I'm a little bit busy. I do usually find time every day to cook something for myself with the help of this site, and to exercise (to counteract the effects of the great recipes I find here). I don't have much time in my life for hobbies at the moment (sigh), but I seem to recall that I used to like reading, going to see musical performances, and watching movies. I still do my best to travel as much as possible. My sister, Kate, my boyfriend, Jake, and my friend, Kris, are my favorite travel partners. Kate and I go on an "eatacation" every year.
