What I love most about this Baked Salmon Salad Spread is that the flavor isn’t too fishy tasting, which for me can sometimes be a turnoff.

The mild flavor of this salmon salad spread is balanced nicely with bright, fresh lemon zest, dried dill weed, and a touch of sweet pickle relish.

  1. omg these photos are fabulous and I cant wait to try this spread! Thanks Renee!

  2. Well, this is happening–with chicken! And I still like to use Old Bay–so much flavor!

  3. This is creative! Nice pictures too!

  4. I love making salmon salad for lunch and this recipe looks so much better than mine! How long do you think it would keep in the fridge if I made a batch just for myself?

  5. 5 stars
    This salmon salad was so good, it brought me right back to my childhood. I will definitely make this recipe again!

  6. 5 stars
    Relish, dill and lemon, when combined with salmon brings an amazing dish!

  7. I loved that this was made using fresh salmon instead of canned. I just can’t get behind canned fish. While I love it on crackers, we also served it as a sandwich and it was delightful!
