Simmer the potatoes in water until tender.  Drain and place the potatoes on a sheet pan in a warm over to steam dry, about 5 minutes.  Pureé the hot potates using a ricer or food mill.  Allow the potatoes to cool to room temperature and combine with the remaining salmon cake  ingredients.  Form into 20 small cakes.  To prepare the cucumber relish, toss the relish ingredients together.  Drain any excess liquid from the relish and reserve it to toss with mixed greens.  For each portion, cook 2 cakes in a preheated seasoned skillet until golden brown on each side, about 8 minutes.  Serve the salmon cakes with approximately a tablespoon of cucumber relish.
