Salmon Tartare with Fresh Cucumbers and Avocado

Today is a rather “posh” salad of raw salmon, cucumbers and avocado … simply dressed with olive oil and fresh herbs. The perfect summertime appetizer to pair with a nice chilled glass of Chablis or sparkling Prosecco. Just make sure you have a plentiful supply of crisp Melba toasts on the side.
