Marinated Cucumber Salad
1/4 cup hot water
1/3 cup sugar
1 (8-ounce) bottle Italian dressing
3 cucumbers, cut into 1/8-inch slices
1 medium-sized onion, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1. In a medium bowl, combine hot water, sugar, and Italian dressing. Add cucumbers and onions.
2. Mix well then cover and chill at least 2 hours before serving.
The longer you let the cucumbers marinate, the more flavorful they become. If you like them really crispy, then you should plan to eat them within a day (which should be no problem since, once you start, it's hard to stop)!
With an abundance of cucumbers around, our Test Kitchen came up with another cool and refreshing way to enjoy them -- Cool Cucumber Soup!
