Polish Cucumbers / Polish Mizeria Recipe

Polish Cucumbers / Polish Mizeria Recipe - Fort Lauderdale Personal Chef
These are another of the dishes that transport me to my Grandparents house on the pond in summer. Mizeria means “misery” in Polish . It is said it is because this was a peasant dish originally. I use burpless or marketmore, but you can use English/seedless.

Serves 4
2 Cucumbers, washed and thinly sliced
1/2 cup/125ml/60g sour cream, creme fraiche or mayo (sub 1/2 mayo)
1/2 teaspoon/2ml salt
1/2 teaspoon/2mil ground black pepper
1/2 tablespoon/7ml chopped fresh dill
2 spring onions or 3-4 chives, thinly sliced (optional)
In a medium sized bowl mix sour cream, salt, pepper, dill and onions. Gently fold in the cucumbers to evenly coat. Let sit at room temperature for 30-60 minutes. The “sauce” will become more runny as the salt draws liquid from the cucumbers. Place in the refrigerator to chill or eat at room temperature.
