Smoked Salmon Dip

Busy week night wind down…time to chill out.  Not feeling like spending much time in the kitchen, so “simple” is the word.  This Smoked Salmon Dip is ready to serve in 5 minutes or less with the combined classic flavors of smoked salmon, capers, red onion, cream cheese and sour cream. That's it...5 ingredients and ready to serve in a jiffy, enjoy!

Smoked Salmon Dip


8 ounces Cream Cheese (room temperature)
4 ounces Smoked Salmon (shredded)
1/2 cup Capers (drained)
1 cup Red Onion (chopped)
8 ounces Sour Cream

  • Add Cream Cheese and shredded Smoked Salmon in a bowl, mix until combined
  • Add Capers and chopped Red Onion, mix until combined
  • Add Sour Cream, mix until combined
  • Transfer to serving dish, serve with crackers, enjoy!
Tip: Try reduced or fat-free cream cheese and sour cream to lighten it up...it is still delicious and actually I can't tell a difference.


  1. Love the sound of this, elegant yet simple. Smoked salmon will be on the grocery list this week so we can give it a try!

    1. Please do and let me know what you think...we love Maine and will be up late Summer with family for a week.

  2. Cindy, I made the smoked salmon dip today and it was so good that we had it with crackers and vegetables for supper. I couldn't get smoked salmon at our local (small) grocery store, so we bought fresh salmon and smoked it on our grill. Came out great!
