Rassolnik –is a very common traditional Russian soup made from pickled cucumbers, barley and beef. Also you can have vegetarian version. What I love about this soup is it’s incredibly versatile, healthy, easy to make, and delicious.
The soups name comes from the Russian word rassol, which is brine where pickled cucumbers are kept. Some cooks use brine in preparing this soup, but it is not critical. For me personally, pickled cucumbers alone are enough to give the broth the tangy acidity and the peculiar flavor of pickles.
