Puff Pastry Salmon Bundles

The combination of tender salmon, fresh cucumber sauce and a crisp, flaky crust makes this impressive dish perfect for special occasions. Mom likes to decorate the pastry with a star or leaf design for holidays. —Kimberly Laabs, Hartford, Wisconsin

    This recipe is to die for. The puffed pastry makes the perfect light, flaky crust you want, and the salmon is so flavorful baked inside. The seasonings do not need to be changed and the cucumber sauce is an excellent compliment. The first time I made it I felt I made way to much cucumber sauce though. One cucumber makes a lot. I have made this many, many times along with the baby spinich, strawaberry, and pecan salad with raspberry vingerette dressing and it makes a very elegant presentation, or is great to eat when hungry for it. This is definately a keeper.
