Author Notes: Crispy pan-fried latke and smoked salmon stacks dolloped with cucumber-yogurt sauce and fresh dill. Riley Wofford

Serves: 6 to 8

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 hothouse cucumber, grated and squeezed dry
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dill
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and grated
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 pound smoked salmon, very thinly sliced
  • Fresh dill sprigs, for garnish
  1. Stir together the yogurt, cucumber, lemon juice, olive oil, and dill in a small bowl to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. Place the grated potatoes in a large dish towel and season with salt and pepper. Gather the ends and squeeze to wring out as much liquid as possible.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, drop spoonfuls of the potatoes into the pan, pressing gently with the back of a spoon to flatten. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until golden brown. Drain the latkes on paper towels. Continue cooking the latkes, adding more vegetable oil as needed.
  4. To assemble, top each latke with a dollop of yogurt sauce and a slice of smoked salmon. Garnish each latke stack with a sprig of dill.
