If you are unlikely to be surprised by the usual okroshka, then there is an alternative: cold borsch. It's a cross between okroshka and traditional hot borsch as fresh vegetables are used to make the first dish and it's topped with a cold beetroot dressing. It turns out to be very unusual but at the same time very satisfying and refreshing.

Chef Serhiy (sergeypokanevich) shared a recipe for cold borscht on his Instagram page.
