Healthy Smoked Salmon Dip

I’m putting a different spin on a party dip favorite with my Healthy Smoked Salmon Dip!  This yummy creation is one you can serve without the guilt.

Healthy Smoked Salmon pin2 I’m a sucker for appetizers.  Anything you can dip, dunk or eat in one baby bite makes me happy. Our holiday party tour starts this weekend, so I know I will have to exercise a little self control.  All those apps can add up!

Insert my Healthy Smoked Salmon Dip.  It is a super yummy creation with just a few fresh ingredients. Fresh smoked salmon combine with a combination of low fat cream cheese AND low fat Greek yogurt for a creamy texture and taste.

You feel like you are eating something super decadent, but really you have cut the calories and added more nutrition by making the swap to Greek yogurt!

    Looks yummy! I love smoked salmon but get sick of just eating it on bagels and bread.

    HUGE smoked salmon fan, right here. And the fact that you used more greek yogurt and less cream cheese is awesome because I’m not a big fan of cream cheese. Looks great!

    I was at a menu tasting last night and they had a salad of tomatoes and cucumbers in a light sour cream dressing with a TON of fresh dill. Add smoked salmon to that (which is similar to yours) and I would have been in HOG HEAVEN.

      That does sound so good! Fresh herbs make everything better. Especially dill.
