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.
2) Chop all the boiled vegetables and the onions into cubes. It's better to squeeze the juice out of the pickles before chopping them.
3) Combine all the ingredients. Mix wine vinegar and sunflower oil as a dressing.
