Simple...not too costly...well liked.... got one.
However, it is not documentable. I know they had the type of ingredients
in period.....except its theorized that the cucumber isn't the same as what
we have now.
It's a Polish dip that I was served when my Mother and I went to Poland in
'85 and visited relatives.
It is: 1 pint container sour cream
1 reg size package cream cheese
cucumber, sliced paper thin ( about 1 small one)
radishes , sliced paper thin (about 4 large ones)
either sweet onion minced fine or onion powder to taste
garlic powder to taste
salt and pepper to taste
serve with thin pumpernickel bread....or any sturdy bread....or with bread
and salad (makes a wonderful dressing too.)If you use a food processor ,
blend the cheeses and spices first then dump in the veggies and short burst
it, you will end up with cut up veggies....and as one person put it "texture
like hummus..I like it!" The way it was served to use was with the
veggies stirred in and still in their paper thin state. But for the sake of
speed we used the food processor, pre-made it two days before and
refrigerated it. I sliced the veggies by hand but if you have one of the
thin slicer thingies that could be quick and easy also.
We made up 5 batches of the above and served about 70 people this weekend.
And ended up with only a cup left over because of the requests for refills
