Solyanka with Smoked Meats and Chicken Meatballs

by Editorial Staff

Nourishing and aromatic hodgepodge with smoked meats and chicken meatballs. Slight sourness in taste is provided by pickles, tomato paste, and lemon wedges when served. It takes a little time to prepare such a soup, since the smoked meats are already ready for use, and the chicken meatballs do not cook for long. It turns out a very tasty first course!
