These are perfect to pack in your kids' lunch boxes when they can't face another boring sandwich. We love the salmon, cream cheese and dill tucked inside a crusty roll. The carrots and celery add a nice crunch. -Yvonne Shust, Shoal Lake, Manitoba

"I used 1 5-oz. can of tuna since I didn't have salmon available. I used 1/2 of an 8-oz. container of vegetable cream cheese spread (4-oz.), but kept the dill weed, mayonnaise and lemon juice the same-I used 1/2 tsp. salt and chopped 1/2 cup baby carrots, rather than shred them.

I did not need to beat the dressing! This sandwich filling was delicious!
Thank you for sharing! delowenstein"

"Made this for 2 UK pensioners - wife and self - we loved it but quantities are *well* beyond anything we would normally eat and will probably feed us 3 x over. So - delicious but far too much; great idea .. totally agree on the carrot/celery combination addition .. I used mascarpone 'cos that was what was in our fridge. I suggest that you *keep* the bones and skin as they add nutrition .. and you really won't notice them."

"Really good as is. Also great if the dill is replaced with curry powder."

"I had leftover salmon but didn't have all the ingredients. I used orange juice in place of the lemon juice and added 1 cup raisins. It's delicious!!!"
