      About the Recipe


      This vegan Beetroot Carrot Potato Salad or Vinehret recipe is about vegetables and their simple combination. It is super super nutritious and absolutely healthy!

      About This Recipe

      When I was a child, my Mom used to make 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 food. 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. 🙂

      Vinehret, Vinegret or Vinaigrette?

      The original name of this salad in Ukrainian is Вінегрет or Vinehret, if properly transliterated. However, it is also referred to as Vinegret or Vinaigrette, which would be a misspelled pronunciation of the Vinehret.

      What is the best season to make this Beetroot Carrot Potato Salad?

      The Vinehret Beetroot Carrot Potato Salad is a versatile dish that you can enjoy all year round. However, its ingredients are at their best during the colder months of fall and winter.

      The earthy sweetness of the carrots and beets pairs super well with the heartiness of the potatoes. Perfect heart-warming combo!

      What are the health benefits of Vinehret?

      Beyond its colorful looks, this Ukrainian salad is truly a nutritious gem. Each ingredient is a star in itself:

      • Beetroots support heart health, help with digestion and are a natural source of energy.
      • Carrots are packed with vitamin A – great for healthy vision, skin, and immune system.
      • Potatoes are rich in dietary fiber and potassium, supporting nerve system and aiding the digestion.

      Where Can I Buy the Required Ingredients?

      The best place to buy all of the ingredients is your local farmers’ market. There you will find high-quality home-grown veggies that are essential for creating a great Vinehret.

      In fact, it is possible to grow some of these ingredients yourself.

      Either way, always go for organic produce for the best nutritional benefits.

      Can I Substitute Any of the Ingredients?

      Absolutely! The classic combination of beets, carrots and potatoes makes this salad shine, but who said that you can’t experiment?

      Swap sunflower oil for olive oil or avocado oil. And you may also swap the black beans for white beans. Play with it!

      Can You Make This Salad Part of a Menu?

      Sure. Serve this beetroot potato carrot salad recipe as an appetizer, side dish or even your main course (if you prefer a light meal). It is so light and bright that you can easily make it part of any holiday spread actually.

      Pair your Vinehret with Octopus in Port Wine or Lemon Butter Chicken for some proteins and a comforting dinner (or lunch).

      For a dessert, serve this Strawberry Blackberry Pavlova for the delicate experience.

      Which Drinks Pair Well with This Dish?

      Vinehret is very light, which is why it goes very well with lighter wine types, such as Vinho Verde (Portuguese young grapes wine), Encruzado wine, Sauvignon Blank or Pinot Grigio.

      For a non-alcoholic option, opt for a refreshing mocktail that is infused with herbs (for example, mint or hibiscus) and citrus. Yum!

      How Long Can I Store the Leftovers?

      I doubt you will have any, but if you do, the Vinehret salad can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

      As always, I recommend storing the dressing separately and adding it when serving the salad. This will help with maintaining the freshness and deliciousness of the salad components.

      Recipe Tips & Tricks

      • Do not roast your vegetables. Instead, always bake the beetroot and boil the carrots and potatoes – for the best flavor profile.
      • Dressing balance. As always with any salad, dressing makes it perfect. Or not. So always taste when preparing – make sure to adjust the quantities to suit your taste.
      • Texture. Pickled cucumbers give this salad a lot of crunchiness, so make sure that your pickles are crunchy in the first place. You will thank me later. 🙂
      • Serving. Refrigerate the ready salad 1 hour before serving. This will enhance the flavor of the vegetables.

      Enjoy my delicious Beetroot Potato Carrot Salad Vinehret and cheers to your next healthy and delicious meal!
