Preparation of vinaigrette "Classic":

Step 1: Choose and cook vegetables properly.

Potatoes, beets and carrots for salad need to be taken in medium sizes. The vegetables in the peel are washed thoroughly from dust and dirt. It is best to cook them in two pans: separately beets and separately potatoes with carrots. When cooking, you do not need to salt water! In time, the preparation of these ingredients takes from 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the size and variety of vegetables. You can check their readiness with a fork or knife: if the tubers are soft, then they can be removed from the water. After that, they should cool slightly under natural conditions at room temperature. In other words, to speed up the cooling process, you do not need to fill the vegetables with cold water or place them in the refrigerator, these actions will worsen their taste and saturation. After that, potatoes, carrots and beets need to be peeled with a knife.

Step 2: Cutting the ingredients.

Classic vinaigrette has not only a certain set of products, but also strictly homogeneous slices. This allows the salad to have a balanced taste as well as an aesthetic appearance. So, let's get down to the main point. Onions need to be peeled, washed and dried. Cut into small cubes. It is worth noting that only onions should be finely chopped. Potatoes, beets, carrots and pickles are cut in equal cubes of medium size. Sauerkraut before adding to the salad, you need to study a little. First, you need to taste it. If the product is too salty, then most likely it will overwhelm other ingredients with its strong taste. In order to avoid this, cabbage is washed in warm water, after which it is carefully wrung out. If the sauerkraut fibers are too long, then they need to be chopped. All ingredients are mixed well in a bowl, canned green peas are added. Sometimes, boiled beans are used instead. But legumes must be present in the salad.

Step 3: Serve the Classic vinaigrette.

Ready vinaigrette is salted and peppered to taste. Remember, salt needs to be used very little, since salads contain pickles and sauerkraut! This is enough for some and they don’t use extra salt at all. All this is seasoned with vegetable oil and vinegar. Everything is well mixed so that the dressing evenly soaks all the ingredients of the dish. Next, the classic vinaigrette should be infused. To do this, we cover the bowl with a lid and place it on the lower shelves of the refrigerator for an hour. After that, the salad is ready to eat.
Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- There are no other ways to prepare vegetables than cooking in water to prepare a classic vinaigrette.

For a real salad, such methods are not acceptable, since they modify their taste and texture.

- In the salad you can chop the feathers of green onions, then it will look more vibrant and appetizing.

- A classic Russian vinaigrette is prepared using cabbage and barrel pickles. If you have the opportunity to get such products, then do it. In this form, the salad will turn out with an indescribable aroma and taste.
