I’m back with beets again! :)

On my last beet recipe, I learned that I’m not the only one who loves beets! (Sometimes, I sure do feel that way!)

Anyway, since many of us love this beautiful ruby red root vegetable, I thought I’ll share another favorite salad from my childhood. It’s a classic Russian vinaigrette salad, that’s made of beets, potatoes, carrots, pickles, and sometimes sauerkraut. Loaded with fresh parsley and dressed with extra virgin olive oil, this root vegetable salad is healthy, delicious and absolutely gorgeous. This one is a staple in Russian cuisine!
