“My family's recipe for mizerja. My parents use sour cream, but I use Greek yogurt. This is an easy-to-make side dish that pairs well with many things. I've always liked it served alongside burgers for some reason.”

Directions

  1. Place sliced cucumbers in a strainer and sprinkle with Kosher salt. Mix lightly, then let the cucumbers drain off their liquid for an hour. After that, you can squeeze a bit more liquid from the cucumbers with the back of a spoon. Discard all excess liquid.
  2. In a salad bowl, whisk together the yogurt/sour cream, vinegar, sugar and black pepper. Add the cucumbers and toss to combine. Serve, or let sit in the fridge for up to a day.
