Cucumber Salad (Mizeria)
Serves 6 to 8. Recipe is from Hanna Zaruski. She said, “The old-fashioned Polish recipe also asks for sugar, but it’s truly not necessary!”
3 medium cucumbers, peeled and sliced
½ tsp. salt
1 red onion, chopped
Juice of one lemon
½ cup sour cream (or Greek yogurt)
1 tbl. chopped fresh dill
Lots of freshly ground black pepper
Additional chopped dill or chives, for garnish
1. Peel the cucumbers and slice thinly. Place them in a bowl and sprinkle salt over them. Add chopped red onion, lemon and rest of the ingredients. Mix well and season to taste.
2. Let stand in a cool place for about an hour to allow flavors to blend together. Serve with chopped dill or chives or both on top.
