Smoked Salmon & Cucumber Salad With Dill Yogurt Dressing

One of my favorite no-cook meals, this exquisite smoked salmon salad, makes the perfect meal on the go or a quick and healthy lunch at home.

With slices of smoked salmon and layers of crisp cucumbers, topped off with dill yogurt dressing, you have a fresh and easy summer salad in under 10 minutes. The creamy yogurt dressing is inspired by a traditional Greek tzatziki but instead of mint, fresh dill is mixed with the creamy yogurt and a drizzle of lemon and tabasco for a nice kick. Pair the delicious smoked salmon salad with a glass of riesling for a fresh taste of summer.
