Okroshka - white Russian cold borsch with radish and mustard
Okroshka is a cold white soup made from kefir, which is very common in Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and other Slavic countries, and which resembles a kind of cold borsch. Cold soup with fresh greens and bread gira or kefir is a fantastic refreshment on a hot summer's day, but at the same time it is also quite filling, as it is made with meat, usually ham, boiled meat or sausages. This soup does not require any exotic products, but is suitable for what is usually kept in the fridge...
