Peeled cucumbers

Many housewives peel cucumbers before cutting them into okroshka. Either they are just used to it, or they are convinced that nitrates accumulate on the surface. But you should not remove the skin. It is the peel that adds piquancy to okroshka and prevents the cucumbers from going soft. Without the peel, the pieces will simply turn into a homogeneous mass, and you won't be able to taste them.

Not every radish is suitable for the dish

You shouldn't cook okroshka without radish. But only if the vegetable is really fresh and juicy. If the radish is too hard or spicy, it is not suitable for the dish. The product will simply interrupt the taste of the rest of the ingredients. Alternatively, you can add the radish separately, just before serving.
