    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    There is definilty more than one tradition going on in this recipe. Dill and cucumber unite in a Greek-inspired salad, while salmon and dill are a typical Scandinavian pairing. A great recipe adapted from Food & Wine Magazine. Wine: They suggest a good Sancerre or Pouilly-Fumé to make the fresh, bright flavors of this pasta salad sing.

      Yummy!! I made this for PAC Spring 07. Fresh salmon is really expensive here right now, so I used canned. I hope you'll forgive me for that! I also used dried dill. This came together in no time. What a lovely combination of flavors. Both FDH and DD liked it too. This would be good slightly warm or cold. I'm having the leftovers for lunch today. Thanks for the great recipe!
