Salami Cabbage Blend Borscht {Soup}

This cabbage blend borscht is light and flavorful. The cabbage blend salad with sweet bell peppers is already delicious on it’s own and to combine this with cured dry salami and caramelized onions makes one tasty borscht. 

If you haven’t made the marinated cabbage blend salad, you really should as it not only makes a wonderful side but it makes a great addition to this tasty soup. This recipe was adopted from my wonderful and creative mother in law who came up with this brilliant idea. I love how quick it is to make and how well the cured salami goes with the cabbage and sweet bell peppers, it’s a perfect match if you ask me. This borscht will not taste like salad in fact all the flavors mellow out during the cooking process and make an incredibly delicious soup! The marinated salad is so great to have on hand as it’s so versatile. Serve this with a dollop of sour cream and perhaps this can become a staple on your soup menu:) Try this combination and don’t forget to comment or rate below:)

I prefer the salami from Costco that have the whole peppercorns but any similar brand will do just fine.
