Cucumber Salad Deluxe (D, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 8

4 medium cucumbers, peeled, halved, seeded, and cut into 1/2" slices
1 tablespoon coarse salt or 2 teaspoons table salt
1/2 teaspoon white distilled vinegar
3 eggs, hard cooked
1 teaspoon prepared Dijon mustard
1/3 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
4 to 6 large lettuce leaves, well washed and dried
1 tablespoon finely cut fresh dill leaves

Combine cucumber, salt, and vinegar. Toss with large spoon until cucumbers are well moistened. Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes. Drain cucumbers through sieve and pat dry with paper towels. Place in large bowl.

Separate eggs. Cut whites into 1/8" wide strips, 1-1/2" long and stir into cucumber mixture. Rub yolks through fine sieve into small bowl. Slowly beat in mustard, sour cream, vinegar, sugar, and pepper. When dressing is smooth, pour over cucumbers, and toss gently but thoroughly. Taste for seasoning.

Arrange lettuce leaves on large flat serving plate or on small individual plates and mound salad on top of them. Sprinkle with dill and refrigerate until ready to serve.
