I’ve always loved a good smoked salmon dip but up until recently had never actually made it myself. Now that I have, it is definitely going to become my go-to dip when entertaining. Not only is it delicious, but it is really healthy and super easy to make.
Most store bought dips contain dangerous vegetable oils so I always avoid them. This dip not only combines the lovely essential fats and protein in the salmon but a little gut support via the yoghurt.
Take a look at the variations (below the main recipe) for suggestions to alter the recipe to suit many specific dietary requirements.
