Russian salad: Vinegret

Vinegret is a must for a hearty Russian meal. This healthy vegetable salad is good any time of the year.


4 boiled potatoes 1 onion

1 big boiled carrot

1 boiled beetroot

 2-3 pickled cucumbers (Russian size, not those ridiculous French cornichones!)

1 can of green peas

Dill, parsley, celery, salt, vegetable oil


Yep, cut those veggies into small cubes, add a lot of herbs, salt it and season with vegetable oil. Done. Some people, though, also add canned beans or pickled cabbages.
