Light and creamy, this refreshing Smoked Salmon Dip has a mild smoky flavor that’s buttery and slightly salty. Smoky, savory salmon pairs beautifully with tangy lemon and cream cheese while chives add just a hint of onion flavor. It’s sure to be a hit at your next barbecue.

We made this recipe on the Rider DLX 1200 Pellet Grill, but you can make it on your smoker.
