Mizeria: A Dairy Free Cucumber Salad Recipe

Polish Mizeria, Cucumber Salad, Made Gluten and Dairy Free!

Traditionally, mizeria is made with sour cream.  However, it's just as tasty made with the tangy zip of Miracle Whip, now also made as "Gold Standard Recipe" with no high fructose corn syrup! 

That makes my mizeria okay for folks who are gluten free, dairy free, or following a low FODMAP diet!  In other words, thanks to the folks at Kraft who brought back the original Miracle Whip recipe, mizeria is back on my menu!  

Mizeria, or Polish Cucumber Salad

I generally make enough for one or two meals serving one or two people.  That is, I don't make a whole lot at once, otherwise I eat it all at once.  You can double or triple the recipe as you see fit.
  • 1 large or 2 small cucumbers
  • 1 green onion
  • 2 tsp Fresh or dried dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbs Miracle Whip Gold Standard Recipe
  • 2 - 3 large radishes

  1. First clean, peel (or don't peel), and thinly slice your cucumber and add it to a mixing bowl.
  2. Clean, peel, and thinly slice your green onion and add it to the cucumber slices.
  3. Add 1 tsp dill, salt and pepper, and Miracle Whip to the mixing bowl.
  4. The fun bit: Wash your hands, then toss your salad until everything is evenly coated with the Miracle Whip. Wash your hands, again.
  5. Serve fresh or chilled with additional dill and radish slices on the side. 

Note: For purists, you can add a bit of vinegar to the recipe, but Miracle Whip already contains a bit of vinegar, so I skip it.
