Salmon with Cucumber Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by SJG3483

This can be a very light sauce if you use reduced or no fat yogurt. Serve it this spring.

I followed this recipe to the absolute letter but found the cucumber sauce to be too bitter for my taste. It was also quite thin -- maybe my cucumber was more watery -- I live in the UK so maybe Brit cukes are not appropriate for this. It was edible, but I won't make it again. Darn.
