Traditional salad with walnuts and prunes
Simply - this time. Fast is two. Tasty - it's three. On account of "one, two, three" we get a delicious salad! Ingredients:
- Beetroot (2-3 pieces)
- Prunes (handfuls)
- Walnuts (half a glass)
Preparation: Beets are cooked until ready. If you are confused by the length of this process, then try the express version of beet boiling. Wash root vegetables, put them in a saucepan and pour cold water. Put the pan on the fire and cook for twenty minutes from the boiling point of the water. Then remove the saucepan from the plate, drain the hot broth and cool the beetroot under a stream of cold water. That is, just put the pan under the tap with cold water. After complete cooling, the beet will become soft. Peel the beet and grate on a large grater. Prune and chop prunes in small pieces. Nuts chop in a blender or in a mortar. Mix all the ingredients and season the salad with mayonnaise. If necessary, salt to taste. Note: With rapid cooking, the beets need to be cooled only under running cold water.
Beetroot salad with orange sauce "Vinaigrette"
Very piquant taste, a simple set of products and, importantly, low calorie content compared to a traditional salad with mayonnaise dressing. Ingredients:
- Vegetable oil

- Ground black pepper
Preparation: Beets are boiled, cooled, cleaned and cut into thin and long straws. Prunes are washed and also cut into strips. Nuts are shot. Stir all the ingredients and dress the salad with sauce. For the sauce, freshly squeezed juice of one orange is mixed with the same amount of natural apple cider vinegar and vegetable oil: all proportions are "one to one". Season with black pepper. Note: This version of the salad can be prepared not from boiled, but from pickled beets. In this case, the vinegar is not added to the sauce (it is already in the pickled beetroot).

Preparation: Four medium potatoes and one beet are good for mine and boil. While cooking vegetables, soak two handfuls of prunes and boil hard-boiled four eggs. Finely chop the bulb. Cooked eggs and vegetables are cooled, cleaned and rubbed on a large grater. On the grater, grind and apples (four pieces) with cheese (100 g). Nuts (half a glass) are crushed in a blender or passed through a meat grinder. Prunes are taken out of the water, dried, we put off a few pieces of jewelry, and the rest of the berries finely chopped. Lay the salad layers on a flat dish in the form of a trunk of a ladybug. Lubricate each layer with sauce from mixed in equal proportions of sour cream and mayonnaise:
- Apples and onions
Beetroot is mixed with grated garlic andcreamy and mayonnaise sauce. We spread it on top of the salad, evenly spreading all the "torso" of our ladybug. From prunes we spread the head, we denote the border of the wings and the distance between them (where the tail has a tail). Whole berries "draw" specks on the wings, mayonnaise - eyes (on the head). Note: Nuts for salad should be finely chopped, but do not turn them into porridge.
