Cut the Gravlax into small cubes. Finely chop the shallot and chives.

Peel  the cooked potatoes and cut into small cubes and mix with the stock.  Peel the cucumber, halve and de-seed. Halve the avocado, remove the skin  and pip. Finely cube the cucumber and avocado. Mix together the crème fraiche and herbs. Fold in the potatoes, cucumber and avocado and season  with salt and pepper.
