Smoked Salmon Sandwiches with Ginger Relish

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)


  • 2 none (7-ounce) cucumbers, peeled, seeded, and cut into chunks
  • 1 none (8-ounce) daikon radish, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 4 none green onions, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 none (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lower-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 none (16-ounce) whole-wheat baguette, cut in half lengthwise
  • 12 none large fresh spinach leaves
  • 1/4 pound thinly sliced cold-smoked salmon


1. Place cucumbers in a food processor; pulse 15 times or until finely chopped. Place in a large bowl. Add radish to food processor; pulse 15 times or until finely chopped. Add radish to bowl. Add green onions and ginger to food processor; process until minced. Add to bowl.

2. Combine vinegar, sugar, and soy sauce; stir until sugar dissolves. Pour over cucumber mixture; let stand at least 15 minutes. Drain in a fine mesh sieve, pressing to squeeze out excess moisture.

3. Preheat broiler.

4. Hollow out top and bottom halves of bread, leaving a 1/2-inch-thick shell; reserve torn bread for another use. Place bread on a baking sheet, cut sides up; broil 3 minutes or until toasted. Layer spinach, salmon, and relish on bottom half of bread; cover with top half of bread. Cut into 4 equal pieces.
