This is such a simple idea but it works so well, with the pungent heat of the horseradish offsetting the sour pickles and salty capers. It can be served as part of a shared platter or as a refreshing side dish.

One of my favourite things to do with it is to make a very decadent snack I call the Borsch Burger, which involves throwing two cevapcici (skinless Croatian sausages) onto a hotplate or into a frying pan, pressing them out with a spatula to form a patty, then adding some diced red onion on top. Meanwhile, throw some bacon on the grill to crisp. Flip the patty so that it is onion side down, and immediately lay a few slices of Jarlsberg cheese on top to melt. When the bacon is crispy, press it into the cheese. Cut open a Turkish bread roll, spread both sides with aioli and place it, aioli side down, on the hotplate or frying pan for a minute. Turn the bread the other way up and on the bottom piece place the patty with all the stuff on it. Remove from the heat and top the patty with lots of pickle and horseradish salad and a few rocket leaves. Finally, top with the remaining bread. And don’t forget to breathe when you eat this!
