Put the eggs into a saucepan of cold water. Bring to the boil and cook for 3 minutes. Lift out of the pan using a slotted spoon and plunge into cold water to cool. Peel off the shells and cut each egg in half.
To make the dressing, put the capers in a small bowl and mix with the mayonnaise and yogurt.
Arrange the watercress, lettuce leaves and sliced cucumber on a serving plate or in a large shallow salad bowl. Scatter over the eggs, then drizzle with the dressing.
Sprinkle the smoked salmon with the lime juice, grind over a little black pepper, then scatter the salmon over the salad.
