For those that love pickles, solyanka is a dream come true. Starting with a base of bouillon, solyanka includes all sorts of salty and sour tastes, such as pickles, olives, brine, or lemons. Add some meat, fish, or sausage and mushrooms and other vegetables, and solyanka makes for a whole meal by itself. Solyanka is an unusual dish, with an interesting combination of many tastes and textures together in one soup, so make sure to taste it for yourself.
