- 1 large cucumber, washed, trimmed and peeled
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 2 tsp. red wine vinegar
- 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill
Legend has it this dish was a favorite of Queen Bona Sforza, an Italian princess who married Polish King Sigismund I in the 16th century. Homesick for her native Italy where cucumbers were common, everytime she ate it, it made her cry. Hence the Polish word for "misery," derived from the Latin.
This certainly doesn't make me cry - I could eat the whole bowl!
Oh yum! Dill and sour cream, what's not to love:@)ReplyDelete
