This is one of those appetizers that everyone thinks was made by a professional but was actually something you whipped up in a jiffy. The briny flavour of the salmon combines beautifully with the fresh cucumber. Use mini cucumbers for this dish. They look just as chic as normal sized cucumber but there is less work involved!
