I remember I was a teenager going to the local deli just to get a container of the cucumber and onion salad. It was so different from the typical Italian salads I always had at our house. Buying this salad at the local deli was such a refreshing treat.
This is one of those easy salad recipes you can make ahead of time, even one or two days. It's a great salad for any season. Give it a try.
HAVE A WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING EVERYONE! .... with lots of laughs and good food!
