I went to Poland for the first time this summer and fell in love with chlodnik - I was so excited to see the recipe here. I need to try a few more times before I perfect it myself, but this recipe is fantastic! Just be careful with what you might be wearing when working with the beets!

Wow- such beautiful color. This was great for the 100 degree days we've been having. Perfect summer food although it may be a bit "challenging" for pickier palates. The fresh lemon juice is very important. Try serving it in a martini glass- so pretty. Other chlodnik recipes include chopped radishes as well. I really enjoyed this, thanks BJoslin!

Wow! Amazing recipe. Certainty the best borscht I've ever had, hot or cold. This is a great summer soup, very mild and refreshing. My beets didn't take 15 minutes to cook, they took 30. Other than that, this recipe is perfect. I didn't add the hard boiled egg to the mixture. Instead I topped each bowl of soup with the eggs and a bit of sliced dill pickles. SOOOOOO GOOOD!!!!
