If you love beets, you’re going to love this beet potato salad! The popular “Vinaigrette” salad is a staple dish at most Ukrainian and Russian gatherings! It’s a potato salad that’s loaded with delicious, sweet beets and dill! I love dressing my salad with tasty extra-virgin olive oil and zesty champagne vinegar.
Vinaigrette and Olivier salad are two salads that are synonymous with Slavic food! My grandma used to make it, her mother before her, my mother and now I’m making it at home, too. It’s super easy to make and you can make it ahead of time. Just leave the salad undressed in the refrigerator for up to 3 days; mix it up with you’re ready to serve.
Most people boil their vegetables for this salad but I love this new way of oven-roasting my veggies, especially for the beets. They are much heartier and more flavored when oven-roasted, versus boiled. Give it a try next time you’re making this classic!

You can also dress this salad with a combination of olive oil mayonnaise and sour cream for a creamy version. I usually go for this creamy version versus the oil and vinegar dressing!
