This beet potato salad is a vegetarian salad I grew up with. My mother used to make it for holidays mostly as it can be a chore to make. There are ways to cheat a little and make this salad faster though. This is my personal take on this Russian salad.
This is my favorite way to eat Shuba Salad with Salmon (Шуба с лососем), a classic Russian salad (also called Herring Under a Fur Coat). Served at celebrations and special events like New Years, Christmas, and even weddings. A Russian potato salad with beets, carrots, eggs, potatoes, dill and smoked salmon!
