Lemon and Salmon Dip, food in grey bowl

Need a light appetizer that packs a punch of flavor? Try Live Well Alabama’s fan favorite Lemon and Salmon Dip before a meal. Break out the celery sticks, carrots, or bell peppers for dipping and let everybody enjoy.

Tips: No salmon? Use canned tuna or chicken instead. Zest is grated lemon peel that adds tons of flavor. Before juicing, lightly rub a whole lemon against a cheese grater with smaller holes if you don’t have a zester.


  • 1 can pink salmon, 7 ounces, drained and deboned
  • ¼ cup low fat sour cream
  • ½ cup celery, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika


  • Combine all ingredients except paprika in small bowl. Mix well.
  • Sprinkle paprika evenly on top.
  • Cover and refrigerate. Serve chilled with assorted raw vegetables for dipping.
