Happy Birthday to my sister Kathy today May 23rd! You’ve been a wonderful daughter, sister, friend, wife, mother and grandmother. May God bless you richly all the days of your life on this earth!
Her version of this Russian Salad is posted below.
Kathy’s Vinegrette Recipe (cut recipe in half for smaller families)
2 cans julienne beets (partly drained) juice moistens and adds color
2 cans kidney beans (drained)
1 can sauerkraut (liquid squeezed out)
3 boiled potatoes
3 pickles diced (Claussen or Kosher dill brand preferred)
1/4 of an onion shredded
Dice potatoes, coat them with oil and salt them, then chill. Once the potatoes ae chilled add the remaining ingredients and toss to combine. You could add a little of the pickle juice if you like that flavor. Taste then season to your liking. Usually the sauerkraut and pickles have enough saltiness that you won’t have to add any more.
This is such a colorful salad, it goes well with meat of any kind. At our house it goes with lamb or a juicy steak or sometimes all by itself. Simple, pretty and delicious! Bon Appetit!
