Vinaigrette, full-fledged salad from boiled vegetables

Today we're going to make a salad that's called just Vinegret or Russian Vinaigrette. It's not a dressing, it's not a sauce. It is a full-fledged salad made from boiled vegetables.

Vinaigrette is a salad served as a cold appetizer that was popular in the Soviet Union and remains so in Russia. This dish gets its name from the French sauce vinaigrette, which is widely used as a dressing for salads in Europe. It's made using vinegar, olive oil, and mustard. This salad is a dish in itself in Russia and is traditionally prepared from beets, potatoes, carrots, onions, and pickled cucumbers or sauerkraut.

How to make vinaigrette:

1) Boil vegetables without peeling them. First boil beets, then potatoes and carrots.
