Vinehret (Vegetable Salad)

Ukrainian vinehret may be defined as a village salad – it is made almost exclusively of anything you grow in your garden. It is easy to make, affordable, and rich in vitamins. Since you boil all the vegetables with the peel on, they preserve most of their nutritious value.
