Just when you thought you ran out of all the conceivable vegetable salad recipes, here is a treat from Russia for your next potluck. This Russian cooked vegetable salad is a lovely one, perfect for fall and winter seasons. It has a lot of root vegetables that are cooked in advance, so leftover or canned vegetables are a great option too. The dressing on this salad is a simple vinaigrette made out of sunflower oil, red wine vinegar, a little bit of sugar, and salt and pepper to taste.
Low in fat and full of nutritious vegetables, this salad is a perfect meal served alone or next to your favorite meat. It is also portable, does not require refrigeration, so you can make it for a potluck or picnic.
The leftovers are great too. Some foods are better after few days and this salad falls into that category. The vegetables absorb the tangy flavor of the vinaigrette and get friendlier with each other. Dare to try it? Delicious!
