Summer Dill & Cucumber Salad

Summer Dill & Cucumber Salad is also an Eastern European salad called “Mizeria”. The flavours of cucumber and dill blend together perfectly to make a fresh tasting cuke salad.



Yesterday was an exciting day for the little boys in this house. We went to the mall and waited for 3 1/2 hours to meet Matt Murray and the Stanley cup. Most of you know my boys all play hockey and love all things hockey, so this was exciting for them. Matt Murray is the goaltender for the Pittsburgh Penguins and they Won the Stanley Cup this year. Since Matt is from my hometown he brought the cup here for the locals to enjoy too. (See some pics on my Instagram)

Anyhow, I grew up eating this “Mizeria” salad quite often. We had this all year long though, not just in the summer. My dad made it most of the time if I recall correctly. And it’s actually quite simple. Only a few ingredients. It tastes fresh and summery and is simply delightful.

You can slice the cucumbers with a knife. I happen to have a mandolin slicer, so I used the thin setting to slice it.

Add some chopped fresh dill and green onions, mix in the sour cream dressing and that’s it. Super simple right? Perfect for a BBQ side dish.
