Since I had scant cucumbers to harvest - not nearly enough to pickle - I decided to make my own version of mizerja.
I bastardized it a bit by adding in a few additional veggies I had on hand. This makes a great summer salad, even if summer is finally drawing to a close.
My version of mizerja
- Thinly sliced cucumbers (I used a combo of fresh pickling and slicing cukes, but I sliced them too thick)
- Chopped green onions
- Chopped garlic scapes (the shoots that grow out of recently-planted garlic cloves)
- Sliced tomatoes
- sour cream (or buttermilk)
- Minced garlic to taste
- salt and pepper
