The Creamy Cucumber Sauce recipe was on the list of recommended recipes for good heart health that my mom received from her doctor. The sauce was quite good, and she served it with a variety of different types of dishes. But our favorite was her baked salmon loaf. It made for a great main dish when served with this refreshing sauce drizzled on top. The sauce has a fresh, crispy tone and makes an excellent addition to the salmon loaf.
