    3 people made this

    Serves: 8 

    • 4 small potatoes
    • 2-3 small carrots
    • 2 medium beetroots
    • 3 small dill pickles
    • 3 spring onions
    • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 2 tablespoons balsamic or white vinegar
    • salt to taste

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Boil all the vegetables whole and unpeeled - the potatoes and carrots in one pot and the beetroots in another - until they are just tender or easily pierced with a knife. Drain, cool and remove the skins. Dice and place in large bowl.
    2. Dice the pickles and add to the bowl then drizzle oil and vinegar over the mixture. Chop the spring onions and add to the salad. Add salt to taste, mix all together and chill.

    Beetroots colour everything red! if you want the other vegetables to retain their colour put the beetroots in a separate bowl after cooking, peeling and chopping and then mix in the dressing with them in that bowl. Then carefully fold them in with the rest of the salad.

    Really nice and different. All the ingredients used were from my garden.  -  18 Aug 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    An all time Russian favorite! Enjoy this lovely salad with mayonnaise or with a drizzle of olive oil for a healthier version.  -  29 Jun 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
