Super easy and absolutely great version of the longer and original recipe for this soup that my grandmother brought from Russia. On a hot summer day, a bowl of this soup is an energizing lift. Add a piece of of rye or pumpernickel bread served on the side to complete the Russian experience.
Mix the buttermilk, cucumber, beets with their juice, green onions, dill, salt, and vinegar in a bowl; stir to mix thoroughly, and chill, covered, in refrigerator at least 2 hours or overnight for best flavor. Serve cold.
