I often serve smoked salmon on cucumber rounds for a simple appetizer; this Smoked Salmon Salad recipe is modeled after that idea. Instead of a cream cheese dollop, a Lemon Honey Vinaigrette brings it all together.
Smoked Salmon and Cucumber Salad
1 English cucumber
2 celery stalks
1 tbls capers
4 – 6 oz smoked salmon
3 tbls fresh lemon juice
3 tbls extra virgin olive oil
3/4 tsp grainy mustard
2 tbls fresh dill, torn or chopped
2 tsp honey
1/4 tsp black pepper
Whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, mustard, dill honey and black pepper. Set aside.
Dice the cucumber and celery. Toss with the capers and half of the dressing (add more as needed).
Top with the smoked salmon.2
