A&P Deli’s Authentic Marinated Cucumber Salad
(Picture pending; once I make this Antipasto Salad again).
Authentic… absolutely, I prepared this Antipasto Salad daily... and in the summer months, up to 4 times daily during my shift. I worked I worked at the A&P Store in CT., both in the deli and bakery department for 5 years in the mid 1990’s.
3 cucumbers, cut into 1/8-inch slices, blotting slices to remove excess moisture.
1 medium-sized red onion, cut into 1/2-inch slices.
1 (8-ounce) bottle Wish-Bone® Robusto Italian Dressing, adding as much as you desire.
Mix well then cover and chill for at least 4 hours to marinate ingredients together before serving.
Before serving, pour the cucumber onion salad in a nice bowl, and add a little more Wish-Bone® Robusto Italian Dressing over top for a nice presentation.
* Follow the two-hour limit in leaving prepared salads out of the refrigerator. In summertime, shorten the two-hour rule. Even though it always looks great to spread all the food out on the picnic table, it's safer to keep cold foods in coolers until right before eating.
* Before I place the salad in a serving bowl, I drain off some of the liquid, (it could be a little too watery from the cucumbers). I also add some fresh ground ground Special Extra Bold Indian Black Peppercorns.
