When I was a child, my Mom made this vinehret (vegan beetroot carrot potato salad) for the whole family. But unlike everyone else, I had my own way of enjoying it. I was scrupulously consuming potato pieces and pickles only, leaving everything else on the side…
Some people say that we change our food habits with years, which is why we start or stop eating certain produce. Now that I am eating beetroot and carrot like crazy, I confirm that those people are absolutely right – we do change our habits with years. 🙂
Whatever the case is, I think trying something new is as important as motivating and inspiring. And that in itself leads to greater results.
Vinehret, Vinegret or Vinaigrette?
Fun fact: the original name of this salad in Ukrainian is Вінегрет or Vinehret, if properly transliterated. However, it is also known as Vinegret (Russian transliteration) and Ukrainian Vinaigrette (which works better for this dressing actually).
