Polish White Cucumber Salad (Mizeria)
A Polish staple, Mizeria, or easier pronounced as white cucumber salad, is a simple, yet flavorful dish. There are only a few ingredients needed – a base of cucumber, sour cream, and a pinch of salt.
As I grew up and met other Poles, I realized that depending on what part of the country you’re from the recipe can greatly differ. Some versions call for chopped yellow or red onion, and others call for tomato, radish, or lemon juice.
This white cucumber salad is the way my grandma, aunts, and mother have always prepared the dish. Though, in this recipe I have added my personal touch. Feel free to experiment with interesting ways to change it up.
