ukrainian vinigret salad

 i first had this beautiful, delicious and nutritious salad at the wedding of my boyfriend's cousin and his ukrainian bride. when i learned the bride and her mother made the salad themselves, i requested the recipe. i added the avocado for a western twist. thanks nataliya!

2 potatoes
2 carrots
1 beet
1/2 red onion, diced.
1/2 cup sauerkraut
1 1/2 cup cannellini beans
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp olive oil
1 avacado sliced

1. bring two pots of water to boil, place potatoes and carrots in one pot and the beet in another.
2. once vegetables are soft, wash off the skin and chop into small cubes.
3. let the vegetables cool, while mixing together the remainder of the ingredients except the avacado.
4. add the vegetables, and toss. add the avacado last.

The salad looks so good and tasty! I'm part german, and this seems to be somewhat german (cabbage and potatoes). Avocado sounds like a great addition!
