Russian Vinaigrette

 A plate of Russian Russian Vinaigrette

There are a few different ways a Russian Vinaigrette is made, and here is one of them. I personally like this salad among other Russian traditional salads because it doesn't have the heavy amount of mayonnaise, actually it has no mayonnaise. It has a combination of boiled vegetables that you could actually enjoy all year long. 

The first ingredient, beets, already tells you this salad is packed with vitamin A and C. It cleanses the blood and protects against heart disease. Moving on to red kidney beans, it is good to know that they contain a load amount of not only fiber, but also protein. Green onion is anti-viral and lowers the blood pressure.
