cucumber salad from christian constant

hi chowhounders,

i'm hoping you can help me out ... last fall, i stopped in at christian constant's little cafe on 37 rue d'assas for a quick lunch. DH had a lamb tagine and i had an assortment of three composed salads. specifically, there was a lentil salad and a cucumber salad that i'd like to re-create at home.

i've found several recipes for a french lentil salad (using de puy lentils) but i'm having problems finding a recipe for the cucumber salad. it was creamy (creme fraiche, perhaps?) and delicious. there was dill in the dressing. i did not taste mayonnaise.

has anyone ever had a cucumber salad like this? does anyone have a recipe they can share?

thanks!

lilaki
