Salmon is one of my favorite easy dinners. I love to season it with fresh lemon juice and garlic, and it can be prepared in a hurry on a busy weeknight. Another way that you can enjoy salmon is with a summertime appetizer! As a dip, you can still enjoy the flavor of salmon on your favorite cracker or pita. This simple dish can be prepared in a few minutes, and it requires almost no prep time. You might have many of the ingredients already, and this is SO much better than buying a store-bought fish dip.
To get started with this dip, gather fresh ingredients. You’re going to need corn on the cob, swiss chard stalk, sweet onion, red bell pepper, garlic, green onions, cashews, olive oil, mayonnaise, parmigiano reggiano, and salt and pepper to taste. Feel free to get creative though and add extra spice with cayenne pepper or chili powder.
Roast corn kernels after removing from the cob with unsalted butter.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Let the dip cool in the fridge before serving. You can spread this dish on a cracker, Triscuit, or even use pita bread.
