Russian Vinaigrette beet salad (Vinegret, Винегрет)!


[dropcap]V[/dropcap]ibrant, Healthy, and Delicious beet salad! This is salad is delicious cold the next day after it had absorbed all the flavors.

If you love beets, you’re going to love this beet potato salad! It’s very addictive!
Bought Delicious sauerkraut from the Russian store and decided to put it to a good use. You can use any store bought or make your own.

Mix together beets and the rest of ingredients. Adjust to taste. Refrigerate until ready to use.
My behind the scene photo.   I have added some feta cheese on top, but it’s for decoration purposes only. For some reason with my selection of a dark plate and a dark salad, it needed something light to balance it. You know sometimes an idea takes over you and after a while, you think “why did I do this?”, right?

    Very fresh and good! Beautiful too! Made it with dried dill and russet potatoes because that’s what I had on hand. Thanks for the recipe!

    Is that some kind of cheese garnishing the vinaigrette?
