I love saltibarsciai, too, nothing better on a hot summer day. This was not quite enough buttermilk for me, I used closer to a quart, I would say. Also, I do not add the eggs to the bowl, but only to individual servings, and I chop mine up. (If you make more than you can use at a sitting, the eggs will go funky.) Also, the potatoes I serve on the side, not mixed in. Usually I just serve plain boiled potatoes, but mashed potatoes are good, too. If you ever have roasted fresh beets lying around, try it with those.
