Ingredients

1 cup Greek yogurt
1 lemon, zested and juiced (about 2 tablespoons fresh juice)
1 tablespoon roughly chopped fresh dill, plus more for serving
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 loaf rye bread, sliced into 1/2-inch thick pieces
¼ cup olive oil, plus more for drizzling
8 ounces smoked Alaska salmon

Top with some slices of cucumber and the salmon. Garnish with the fresh dill and sprinkle with nigella seeds and flaky sea salt. Drizzle with olive oil before serving.
