Lime and ginger are one of my favorite flavor combos, especially with grilled salmon. So good. Even with the cucumber sauce, this recipe is easy, too. —Noelle Myers, Grand Forks, North Dakota

"The Salmon and the sauce are excellent with the sauce having a really fresh taste. I made 1/2 batch and had tons of sauce leftover. When I make it again (and I definitely will), I will cute the sauce down. Thanks for this wonderful, tasty recipe."

"I made this last night and I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. The tastes were fantastic. don't skimp on the ginger-- use fresh. I added grated lime peel to the rub that goes on the rub. The sauce makes a huge batch. Reduce the cukes by a bit. Love love loved this. Will definitely be making again soon!"
