Recipe Notes

  • You can also use a dairy-free cream cheese spread (Daiya and Kite Hill make some) and a dairy-free yogurt.
  • Nutrition facts are calculated without crackers, celery, or carrots.
  • To Store: Salmon dip will last for up to two weeks if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. However, if you used cold smoked salmon the dip will only last for up to 3 days.
  • To Freeze: Seal the dip in an airtight container for up to 3 months in the freezer and let thaw in the refrigerator for a day or two before serving. If it separates just give it a few good stirs and it will be good to go!
