Ukrainian Beet Salad

Traditional Slavic salad is oddly called the French word Vinaigrette. I usually cook it in winter, but recently I found all the ingredients and decided to make this beetroot salad. This salad is unusual but very rich and yummy. Try it too!
You need to have:

  • 2-3 beets

  • 2-3 carrots

  • 2-3 potatoes

  • 1 cup cooked or canned beans

  • 2 large dill pickles

  • 1 medium or few small onions

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

You need to do:

Place the beets into a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes. Add the carrots and potatoes. Boil for another 20-25 minutes. Drain the beets, carrots and potatoes, and let cool completely

Remove peels when cool

Cut the beets, carrots and potatoes into small pieces

Stir in the beans

Cut the the pickles and onion into small pieces

Mix all well then stir in the salt, pepper and olive oil

Serve the beet salad with greens, croutons or bread. For the main dish salad goes well with mashed potatoes and meat

Bon Appetit or as the Ukrainians say: ‘Smachnoho’!
