Big bowl of Vingret

What is Vinegret

Vinegret comes from the french word, Vinaigrette, but it does not mean the same thing. Vinaigrette in french is basically a salad dressing made from oil, vinegar, spices, and/or lemon. As for a Vinegret, it is the name of a Russian Salad. It is a very popular salad throughout Russia and Ukraine. It is served during celebrations or special events.

What can you find in Vinegret the Russian salad

From all my research and my husband opinion, the best version is the one based on beetroots. You can find in Vinegret, beetroots, carrots, potatoes which they are all boiled, some onions, brined pickles, and green peas. Some people will even add meat, fish, beans but at home, I make it the traditional way. All about the vegetables, oil, fresh dill, salt, and pepper.

How to make Vinegret

First, you need to boil the carrots, the potatoes, the beets, and the green peas. After letting the vegetables cooled down, before cutting them. When the vegetables are cool, cut (the carrots, the beets, the potatoes) into small cubes. Cut them the same size it is more pleasant to eat. Keep the green peas aside, for now, they are the last ingredient to add to the Vinegret. Put all the roots chopped vegetables into a large bowl. Chopped the onions, the pickles and add them to the bowl. Now you can add the green peas, the salt, pepper, the fresh dill, and the oil. Mix all the ingredients carefully. I highly suggest to use your hands, it is the best way to not crushed the vegetables, especially the green peas. Voilà! Вкусный русский салат!
