A light and fresh salad with cucumbers and tomatoes tossed in a lemon dill vinaigrette then topped with smoked salmon and feta.
Lemon and dill pair well with salmon. I often cook salmon with lemon and dill so I decided to put together a salad that would combine these flavors with smoked salmon. I love the different textures of crisp cucumbers and juicy tomatoes in a Tomato and Cumber Salad and dill pairs well with cucumbers too. So I thought this salad would be a perfect way to compliment the flavors I associate with salmon. It turned out great. This salad is light and fresh with bright flavor and a perfect saltiness. It's great as a side salad or light lunch, but you don't have to add smoked salmon if you don't have any. It is great on its own or even served alongside grilled salmon for a Labor Day cookout.
