Don't let the name deceive you - This is very easy, no misery involved! I love Polish food but it is usually high in salt or fat, so I don't make it very often (unfortunately!). This is a very refreshing side dish, especially during the hot summer months. * You can substitute lemon juice for the vinegar and dried dill for the fresh, if you need to.
