Makes: 4 servings
Salt and pepper
1 1⁄2 cups peeled, seeded, and diced cucumber
1 pound fully cooked lobster tail meat, chopped
1⁄2 cup olive oil mayonnaise
2 scallions, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons minced tarragon
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon Italian dressing mix
Butter, for toasting
4 hot dog buns or sandwich rolls
Lightly salt cucumber, wrap in paper towels, and allow water to drain for about 10 minutes. Pat dry with fresh paper towels.
In a medium bowl, combine cucumber, lobster, mayonnaise, scallions, tarragon, and lemon juice. Season with pepper to taste. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Lightly butter hot dog buns. In a large heavy skillet, toast buttered buns until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.
Spoon the chilled lobster salad onto the warm buns.
