A copy cat recipe. I haven't tried this one yet. Although at the 4-H District Speech Supper last year, one lady brought a salad similar to this one, but without the cucumbers in it. A person could change the kind of veggies, and probably half the recipe for your family.
I had an awful craving hit me for one of these wonderful K-mart Sub's and HAD to have one! I searched high and low and finally found a woman on a message board that used to work the deli counter in the late 80's at a K-mart in Dayton, Ohio. This was one of the same stores that my Mom would take me as a kid to get one of these wonderful sub's and a frozen Coke! I used to stand in front of the counter and watch them make these sub's and remembered all but one of the ingredients. Make sure that you wrap your sub's and allow them to sit for 30 minutes before serving or they are not the same. This allows the bread, meat and veggies to show some love to one another.
These were born out of a search for a recipe to duplicate the beloved mushrooms from the Longhorn Steakhouse. They are inspired because this is a combination of aspects from NurseDi's recipe 28766 and TheDancingCook's recipe 36869 (thanks to both of you!), along with my own tweaking. In addition to loving the mushrooms prepared this way, I also love the wonderful cooking liquid that is left over -- I keep it in the fridge for use in other dishes (such as soups and pot roasts) once the mushrooms are gone. Recipe is easily multiplied for more servings, and leftovers reheat well.
Well, I can't tell you HOW I got the "secret ingredient", but it's one of those things where you kind of say to yourself, "Now why didn't I think of that"? Coffee creamer! The powdered kind. That's it--simple I know! I grew up on these things--a must have at the mall--and trying to make them at home just wasn't quite right....try this. You may need to fiddle with the amounts some. When I make this recipe the blender is topped off - about 1/2 inch from the rim, but I don't really measure anything when I make it--i just throw stuff in until it tastes right.
From www.TopSecretRecipes.com. This is my all time favorite ranch dressing and I found it at Outback. Each packet of the dressing mix hold approximately 3 tablespoons worth of mix so you can triple the recipe, or make it 3 separate times. This recipe goes great with Cheese Fries! (Prep time is chill time, but isn't necessary)
