This cooked vegetable salad is adapted from a Russian dish. When served with a hearty soup, it makes a complete meal.

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium beets or 1 16-ounce can beets
  • 3 medium boiling potatoes
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 3 small dill pickles, diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions, white part only
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 eggs, hard boiled, coarsely chopped
  • Dressing:
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons bottled horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • freshly ground black pepper

Instructions:

Cook beets, remove skins, and cut into 1/2-inch dice. Peel potatoes and carrots and cook until each vegetable is tender but not mushy (about 20 minutes for potatoes and 10 minutes for carrots). When cool, cut into 1/2-inch dice. In a large bowl combine beets, potatoes, carrots, pickles, scallions, and dill. Toss vegetables gently, season with salt and pepper, and add hard-boiled eggs. Cover and refrigerate to chill thoroughly before serving.

For dressing: Combine yogurt, mayonnaise, horseradish, lemon juice, and sugar in a blender, and mix until smooth. Season to taste with pepper. Pour dressing over the vegetables and chill until served.
