This recipe was given to me by our friend Emilia Mig almost a year ago now and I am still enjoying it. Mizeria is a great side for a BBQ, it provides lite and cool flavor that pairs well with meats or spicy foods. it also works well on a burger. This mizeria is very easy to make with minimal ingredients.

    • My maternal grandmother was Norwegian on her father’s side and Swedish on her mother’s side. However she was friends with people who were from all over.
