Smoked Salmon Cucumber Salad

This smoked salmon cucumber salad is a cool & refreshing salad that is tossed with a simple home-made dill sauce. This is an easy salad that can be whipped up in under 15 minutes. Recently, I set out a goal to make more varied & interesting salads. So I flipped my favourite salad cookbook and saw beautiful cucumber ribbons, which was how the idea for this salad come along.

Plate the salad & drizzle a bit of quality sesame oil over the contents. I really love the aroma of Japanese sesame oil (I’m using the popular brand ‘Kadoya’), and kept mine in the fridge to prevent it from turning rancid due to our humidity. Garnish with sesame seeds and more ikura fish roe. This is so simple, pretty and gratifying!
