The benefit of vinegret as a salad lies in the fact is not only healthy, replete with vitamins and diverse nutrients, but fully vegetable, and it may be prepared and eaten even on strict fasting days.In addition, it is relevant for both casual and festive menu.

In general, there are many variations of the salad but this variant is classical, the most popular and the tastiest. By the way, sometimes I prepare vinegret without cabbage and beans – it tastes good as well. Some people add pickled mushrooms but to tell straight, I have never tried such an option.

I enjoy and like this salad, and recommend to eat it especially in winter. Savor and here is the recipe.


400 g of beetroot
400 g of carrot
400 g of potato

Monastery Salad

Салат з морквою

The priest said that the same salad is served at their monastery for more than ten years. And it is true if you eat some dish for ten years you fail to sense its splendid taste.

And all kidding aside, this is a really tasty and useful salad. If to prepare the salad for children, you have to make it mild and with sour cream, and if you target at grown-ups, add garlic and mayonnaise. This is a great salad, for my liking, though it seems to be nothing special. It is recommended for carrot-lovers :).


300-400 g carrot
3-4 eggs
3-4 cloves of garlic
