This dip fits perfectly with grilled salmon. Serve with rice. Greek style yogurt is a bit more sour than regular plain yogurt.

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 is called yogurt cheese (delicious mixed with some herbs etc. for a dip) or Greek Yogurt. Greek Yogurt can also be found at Trader Joe's or some supermarkets are now carrying it. Read More

For my tastes this recipe calls for WAYYYYY TO MUCH DILL so I cut the amount in half and it was still way to much! Since I didnt have any lemon pepper I just squeezed lemon onto the salmon and fresh ground black pepper sprinkled a little garlic salt ontop as well...rubbed it into the steak. Put it in a foil packet and set in the fridge for about an hour. Baked in the oven at 375 for 20 minutes. Tasted okay... will use even less dill next time. Read More

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 sometimes use sour cream instead. This is great with corn on the cob and roasted potatoes. Read More

I've made this salmon several times and it's always a hit. It's particularly good in the summer when done on the grill; the avocado dip tastes cool and fresh. Read More

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 both the fish and the sauce! Read More

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 which can be a little sour on its own but works very well together with the salmon. Thank you for the recipe!:) Read More

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 to use sour cream. The Greek yogurt makes a huge difference though! This is such a simple recipe and the avocado dip is good on just about anything Read More

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. Read More

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 plank grilled it. So good. The avocado dip was cool and delicious served with the firm smoky fish. Yum! Read More
