My family ate it quietly. When I asked my husband what he thought, he said, "interesting". I'm a fairly good cook so I'm not used to this reaction.I used leftover salmon instead of canned. I also added diced green pepper. I didn't like the cream cheese--too heavy so I added another tablespoon of mayo. Just didn't like it. I guess I'm not too much of a fish salad person.

Moist and flavorful filling. The only change I made was to use cream cheese with veggies because that's what I had on hand. The second time I made it my husband asked me to put dill pickle slices on his. I liked mine just the way it was. Super good.

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!!!
