Introduction

This is a delicious and healthy alternative to potato salad. It packs a wonderful 4 grams of fiber per serving and works great as an attractive and tasty side dish for any potluck, barbecue, or any meal. This is a traditional Russian side dish that my mother has passed on to me and my friends and I love it! Everybody always asks me to make it for cookouts and pool parties.

Ingredients

    5 Medium Potatoes
    5 Medium Carrots
    2 Small Onions
    7 Medium Dill Pickles
    3 Cans Sliced Beets
    1 Can Sauerkraut
    1 Can Green Peas
    .5 Cup Olive Oil (more or less)
    6 Large Garlic Cloves (or garlic powder)
    (optional) salt and pepper

Directions

Boil potatoes and carrots until a knife can be easily inserted, I usually boil for 25 minutes. Empty pot, submerge in cold water, then empty again and set in the refrigerator to cool. I also put all the canned items in the fridge the night before preparation. Once all the ingredients are cold cube the potatoes, carrots, and beets. Dice the onions, and pickles into small pieces. In a large pot or mixing bowl mix all ingredients, adding the peas, sauerkraut, olive oil, and garlic (I always crush fresh, but I suppose you can use powder). I haven't been using any salt but you can salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and enjoy! Makes about 15 (1 cup) servings.
