On a recent trip to South Australia, I chanced upon a dip, Black Swan’s Smoked Salmon and Avocado dip, that was so memorable, let’s just say, I consumed three containers of this over a ten-day trip in South Australia. That’s how nice it is.
I was initially skeptical about the dip as I’m not a huge fan of avocado and its by-products (hint: guacamole). However, the smoked salmon caught my eye and I figured that a strong-flavored ingredient should be able to mask the flavor of the other – AND I WAS RIGHT.
The dip went so well with plain crackers and on toast. My form of big breakfast in Australia included Toast, Eggs, Bacon, and this dip. This dip is not too salty, which makes it a great spread as well (even with salty pairings like bacon).
A check on the list of ingredients included cream cheese and mayonnaise, which probably gave it its rich consistency. There was a hint of avocado and I was glad the smoked salmon taste wasn’t too overpowering.
Black Swan carries many kinds of dips, including Sweet Potato and Cashew, Crispy Bacon and Caramelized Onions, and I was tempted to try the others, but I kept being drawn to the Smoked Salmon and Avocado dip.
If you reside in Australia, you may want to check our your local Coles or Target! If you are vacationing in Australia, why not try it out? You may end up bringing back some to your home country, just like I did! I brought not one but four back home (only three remain).
