    Delicious! I even used canned salmon and it was still terrific!  -  03 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used sliced smoked salmon, and fresh dill, which made the salad taste a lot fresher than if I had used dried dill. This salad is delicious, and tastes like it's from a gourmet deli. The smoked salmon is already salty so make sure to taste the salad prior to adding more salt! Thanks.  -  11 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was delicious! I've made it twice, and both times people raved about it and asked for the recipe. The first time I used canned salmon, and the second time I used fresh salmon that I first baked. I've used this to make afternoon tea sandwiches, and they were a hit. My husband really enjoyed it, too - thanks for the recipe Donna!  -  31 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
