This quintessential summer soup is made from beets, beet greens, sour milk (in the absence of which, use buttermilk, kefir, or yogurt--some use sour cream), radish, cucumber, pickles, lemon, hard boiled egg, dill, chives, and, for a fancy version (not for me) veal or shrimp. I sometimes serve mine with a hot boiled potato on the side.

Recipe Ingredients for Chłodnik

1 1/2 pounds raw beets
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup water
1/2 pound shrimp, cooked, peeled, deveined and cubed

  2. In a soup pot, combine beets, half of the chicken broth and water and bring to a boil. Simmer about 20 to 25 minutes until the beets and tender.
