    This would be a delicious addition to our Christmas dinner. Some stop in early to chat. I’m pretty sure everyone likes salmon too.

    This would be great on a thin slice of cucumber in a roll. Perhaps even some zucchini slices would par well with this and half grape tomatoes.

    This sounds good. I also like it when we go to parties we are asked to bring one dish, we pick appetizer, main veggie or dessert. With the appetizers they like, veggie or fish or meat or cheese or chicken. This would fit into the fish perfectly. I don’t like a lot of fish, this I know I would like. Thanks for sharing.

    All of our family like anything to do with smoked salmon….my dad used to slow-smoke it himself.
    The addition of ricotta cheese and the ease of which it is made both add greatly to this dish.

    My local grocery store carries a salmon dip that I love but it is very expensive. This looks like it would be as good.

    That looks so good. I’d use the capers and add some fresh dill.
