    BIG_CHIEF's Note:

    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.

      This is very close to how my Babcia makes it (she is 100% Polish). The vinegar should be an accent in the recipe, so the only tip I can suggest that is very important (and wasn't included here) is to squeeze the cucumbers in a cheesecloth and squeeze and squeeze and squeeze until no more liquids come out before adding the sour cream. *The cucumbers should be very dry before adding the sour cream.
