Simple smoked salmon, cucumber, and fennel salad

Simple smoked salmon, cucumber, and fennel salad

"This recipe is in fact a "recipe without a recipe". Which means: You don't need exact quantities (just a little culinary intuition when you taste the crème fraîche dressing) so that you are full and satisfied after the meal. If anything is left over, the individual ingredients can be stored separately—and if you happen to have a ripe avocado at home, it goes wonderfully with the rest of the ingredients!"
