What Ingredients Do You Need To Make Salmon Dip?
I mixed the basic dip with cream cheese and sour cream. Next, I added some ranch dressing, cayenne pepper, and my favorite thing which is capers. The capers give this dip a salty flavor without adding the salt. After adding the salmon to this mixture, it is amazing.
