Ann J's Polish Sour Cream Lettuce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Jezski

Different and refreshing. If you like cucumbers in sour cream, you'll like this. A vintage recipe made by my little old Polish mother, who received it from an even older Polish lady. I've never seen this recipe anywhere else. I suspect it might have a bit of a German history somewhere. Use these measurements as a guide; this is for a fairly large head of lettuce.

Mayo is just not the real deal, totally different. Grew up with this during every holiday. Want more sweet sour taste, use plain white vingar, adjust with sugar. Never use Mayo, thats just not lettuce and cream
