Pan-Seared Salmon with Cucumber-Dill Sauce
TAKES: 25 min. MAKES: 4 servings
This is one of my husband’s favorite recipes. Salmon is a go-to for busy nights because it cooks so quickly and is so versatile. The creamy dill sauce tastes light and fresh, with a nice crunch from the cucumbers. —Angela Spengler, Tampa, FL

1/4 tsp. salt
