Canned salmon may be one of the wonders of modern civilization. With it, you can make Salmon Patties, a quick and convenient weeknight entree that can be dressed up easily. Here, we suggest a Cucumber Sauce instead of tartar sauce or the honey-mustard in the recipe, and add Basil Potatoes and Broccoli with Walnut Butter. The sides give the menu a Greek flair -- perfect with the dill in the fish.
