It’s #BurgerWeek! In conjunction with some of my favorite food bloggers, hosted by Noshon.It, we are bringing you a full week of crazy delicious burgers of all kinds. My contribution to the party is an incredibly delicious Salmon Burger topped with a creamy yogurt caper sauce. And what goes better with Salmon Burgers than a Quick-Pickled Cucumber Salad? It’s all has a very Scandinavian feel, doesn’t it? It’s salmon season right now, so this was a great time to experiment.
I hope you’re not tired of my Ode to Cucumbers yet because I can’t make any promises to stop anytime soon. I absolutely love them. This salad is very simple, as the best salads are. Just cucumbers, shallots, vinegar, salt and pepper, dill, and a little sugar. The cucumbers soften just a bit, but don’t lose their crunch. It’s a very refreshing salad to have; it helps cut through any richness and adds a fresh, crisp element. It’s the perfect side for this burger.
