Great dip. If you can't find Greek style yogurt, take a carton of plain yogurt and let drain over cheesecloth for a few hours. The liquid will drain out of it and what is left in the cheesecloth...

I'm always looking for good salmon recipes. This one is always well-received. I often just broil it in the oven rather than grill it. The avocado dip is great...if I don't have yogurt, I'll s...

Delicious! I used fat free sour cream in place of the yogurt. Instead of salmon, I used sole filets and broiled them. It worked really well, and the dinner party I served them to really liked bo...

This is one of my go to recipes. I have been making it for over 6 years. When I first started making it, I had never heard of Greek yogurt (and had an even tougher time finding it) so I used t...

Simple, delicious, and healthy. We don't have a grill, so I bake the salmon fillets at 375 degrees for about 18 minutes. I've added this to our regular rotation of meals. I use 2% Greek yogurt, ...

Just the idea of avocado with salmon is great. We use our usual guacamole recipe with this and it turns out great! Both my parents and my in-laws loved it.

I really like this recipie, I added a bit of extra garlic, and instad of using lemon pepper, I put some lemon juice on the salmon. The dip was delicious and went perfectly, but I don't think the...

I made this for the avocado dip, which was perfect alongside my salmon. For the salmon, I squirted lemon juice on it, covered it in Chef Paul Prudhomme's Salmon Magic (love that) and cedar plan...
