Mizeria - Polish Cucumber Salad
- 1 large cucumber
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
- 1/4 to 1/3 cup sour cream
- 1 tablespoon white or cider vinegar
- pinch of sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Peel cucumber(s). Slice cucumber very thinly and place in a bowl. Sprinkle slices with salt and let sit for 30 minutes to pull the liquid. Drain water from the salted cucumbers and gently squeeze to expel any remaining water. Pat dry with paper towel.
Mix sour cream, vinegar, sugar, and dill in medium bowl. Toss cucumber slices in mixture. Allow the salad to marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Taste, season with salt and freshly ground pepper as needed and serve. Garnish with dill if desired. Serves 4 but is easily doubled or tripled.
