Polish Cucumber and Sour Cream Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Natalia 3

This is a traditional polish side salad. Its usually served with chicken or pork escalopes but its delicious served with gulash or any other meat dish. Also it makes a cooling and refreshing end to any spicy dish. For a low fat version replace the sour cream with fat free greek yoghurt and you will get an equally delicious salad.

We omit the sugar and add freshly ground black pepper and a good amount of thinly sliced onion. I don't always add the lemon juice, either, as I like a thicker "dressing". I never really measure, but I do think I use a bit more cucumber for this amount of sour cream. Definitely tastes better if allowed to chill for a bit so the flavors have time to marry a bit. Very cool and refreshing!
