We are visiting Russia this month for the #Food of the World event. I picked a very easy Russian grated beet salad from Natasha’s Kitchen.
I have tried a few Russian recipes in the past and for this month I was planning to try my hand at baking a Russian bread, but time just slipped out of my hand and I finally had to pick something relatively simple. That is when I landed on Natasha’s grated beet salad.
It is a quick chopped (or grated) salad that almost requires no cooking. The only component that is cooked is the grated potato that is fried until nice and crispy. I conveniently forgot to put it in the bowl, so you don’t see the potatoes in the photos. But that is one of my favorite part of this salad.
I made it for my lunch today and I was surprised how filling and delicious it turned out with minimum effort put into it.
