Nice salad cookie, I'd have to sub the smoked salmon for canned chunks or even smoked chicken to suit my taste.

It would be nice with cold chicken left overs Judy.  In fact any sort of protein, even boiled eggs.

I was going to add some leftover chicken to fried rice for tea tonight but decided to use it for this recipe instead cookie. 

I just used ordinary potatoes cut into 1/4's and pan fried the zucchini ribbons for a short time (have never eaten raw zucchini), warmed up the chicken and did everything else as per recipe.  A warm salad, something I don't remember having before.

Verdict - I loved it cookie ;D  Such a versatile recipe too, use whatever you like virtually.

Thanks.  I wasn't too sure how DH would go with it but he loved it too. It's sort of something you could do from leftovers.

Thanks Cookie , looks great.  Will make. 
Judy , you must try the uncooked Zuchinni.   Like you I didn't think I would like it ,  but had some in Turkey and loved it. They mix it with carrot and salt it ,  then rinse and dry,  before serving with yoghurt.  Could also serve with hummus.

Actually you don't really remember it is uncooked zucchini when you are eating it. ;)
