Smoked Trout Salad with Apples, Dill, & Cucumbers

Smoked Trout Salad with Apples, Dill, & Cucumbers

Smoked trout was a delicacy when I lived in the States, but here in Switzerland it’s affordable—there’s even a Migros Budget or Coop bargain package.  I like this recipe because it mixes the smoky flavor of the trout with crisp, tart Granny Smith apples and mellow, crunchy cucumber.  Although this may seem like a lot of dill, don’t skimp!
