Vinaigrette or vinaegrette?

Have you ever wondered how to correctly write the second syllable “e” or “i” for this salad? Everything is simple enough, the name comes from the French language: vinaigrette, which was the name given to a sauce made of vinegar, salt and olive oil. And it is pronounced as “vinəˈɡret” – vinaigrette.

The salad itself gained popularity in Soviet times and is often heavily attributed to Russian cuisine, which is a false statement. The very concept of cuisine in russia is nothing more than a set of borrowed and appropriated dishes from different cuisines of the world.

The salad includes the following main ingredients: potatoes, beets, pickles, carrots, onions and spices, and depending on the recipe, sauerkraut, beans, and green peas can also be used. Salad is dressed with olive oil and vinegar, but in Soviet times it was impossible to buy olive oil. Therefore, the salad was dressed with ordinary sunflower oil. It is usually served as a side dish to meat or as an independent snack.

How to make homemade vinaigrette?

This delicious beetroot potato salad is made with boiled potatoes, carrots and beets. Traditionally, vegetables are boiled in salted water until tender, but in this recipe we will use oven-baked vegetables, especially beets, instead. They are much richer and more aromatic if roasted in the oven than boiled.

⬇ A detailed, step-by-step recipe with a photo is given below:

  • To bake in the oven: Place the potatoes and carrots on a large baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Wrap the beets separately in foil so that they cook faster. Bake in the oven at a temperature from 190 °C to 220 °C. They will cook faster at a higher temperature, but keep a close eye on the vegetables, so they don’t burn. Vegetables should be soft!
  • To boil: cook potatoes and carrots in one pot, and beets separately. Fill the pans with water, sprinkle generously with salt, add the vegetables and bring to a boil. Cook until a fork goes in easily, then let the vegetables cool before handling!

What to dress the salad with?

This Eastern European salad can be dressed in two different ways! Both are equally delicious! The most traditional dressing is simply salt, pepper, and sunflower oil. You can also use olive oil or avocado oil. For a creamy version, try dressing the salad with a combination of mayonnaise and sour cream. Make a mixture of mayonnaise and sour cream in a ratio of 3:1. Sour cream adds a bit of tartness to the salad.
