It is prepared with different dressings: kefir or mineral water, sour cream with sparkling water, whey or kvass. Today I will tell you how to cook okroshka using whey, this recipe is one of my favorites. If desired, the sausage can be replaced with boiled chicken fillet or beef. You can also use ham, boiled beef or pork tongue.
