READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by Brentster

I have found my friends, mom's, Polish cuisine, to be very endearing and this is a side dish called Miseria which I have grown to love very much and I am sure you will also.

I make a similar recipe with cucumbers & sour cream. Instead of plain salt,however, I use Garlic Salt (shake heavily), and also several good shakes of paprika. This is a hit with everyone to whom I have served it.


  1. skin the cucumbers.
  2. and slice them thin.
  3. sprinkle with salt.
  4. mix this up.
  5. leaving this sit for 5 minutes.
  6. squeeze the excess liquid in hands.
  7. sprinkle with pepper.
  8. Mix in Sour Creme and serve.
