Using thick Greek yogourt and low-fat sour cream means there is nothing fishy about the calorie count of this dip. Serve alongside cucumber slices or pieces of toasted rye or pumpernickel bread.
Better for you: Smoked salmon helps you reel in a boatload of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Greek yogourt provides about twice the protein as traditional versions.
