Can there be anything more Polish than fried meat, onion, dill pickle, and potatoes in one dish? I don’t think so! This simple Polish side dish recipe was invented by my mom-in-law. She adds it to the Polish soups (for example barszcz czerwony) and main courses. It can be served warm or cold. Once you try it, you will never get enough.
The thing I love about this Polish side dish is that it’s really quick to make and it’s delicious. The strong taste of ogórek kiszony makes it taste truly Polish.

It will also make a great appetizer.

It’s totally up to you whether you will serve it warm or cold!
