WWEW: Link Party & Refreshing Cucumber Salad

Welcome back to What We Eat Wednesday! As the warmer months start approaching, I start looking for nice refreshing recipes that don't require much work or an oven/stove top. I decided to give this Cucumber Salad a go, and I think we have a winner. I looked over several recipes, and sort of adapted it to fit our liking. While looking up recipes, I found out that this is actually a fairly common Polish recipe called Mizeria. I definitely knew I needed to make it after reading that, since I'm part polish and love finding things having to do with the culture.

-1 large cucumber
-1 Tbs sour cream
-1/2 tsp dill
-juice from 1/2 of a lemon (many recipes call for vinegar instead)
-2 pinches of sugar
-pepper to taste

1. Peel your cucumber and slice thinly. Place in colander. Sprinkle with salt (I just eyeballed it). Let sit for about a half hour for some liquid to drain.
2. While cucumber slices are draining a bit, mix all other ingredients into a small bowl. Cover and put in the fridge.
3. Place cucumber slices on paper towels and pat/press dry. Don't rinse off the salt.
4. Add cucumbers to sauce, mix. Either let sit in the fridge for a while or serve. We let ours sit, and it was delicious.

Now for the Link Party Feature from last week. I chose these delicious looking Cake Mix Peanut Butter Cookies from Yesterfood. I'm going to give these a go this week!
