  1. I would like to try this, but a couple of things, I saw this on a healthy, no-cook dinner list, but it doesn’t explain where/how to get the smoked salmon. Is that canned? Frozen? And are the noodles soft?

    1. Hi Lisa! We used fresh smoked salmon and the noodles are just raw spiraled cucumber, so they are slightly crunchy 🙂
