      Another great recipe from the kitchen of Chia. We really liked this version of cold salmon. I served slices of it over a mixed greens salad and left off the cucumber scales. With the leftover fish, I made a second sauce which was just Miracle Whip mixed with ketchup-- kind of a Russian dressing which my husband loves. Oh, and I also included some fresh lemon slices in the poaching liquid. Thanks Chia!

      This is an incredible recipe. It reminds me of the cold salmon that my grandmother used to make at Rosh Hashana parties. I have been looking for a similar recipe and this is really close. Thank you!
