This Ukrainian salad is a perfect dish for a lunch or a snack between meals. Nutritious and extremely healthy.

The combination of pickled and boiled vegetables makes this recipe an awesome dish in its simplest form. The boiled potatoes, carrots, and parsley root are a great way to boost the plant content of your salad by preserving as many of the nutrients as possible while a fresh apple adds some bright flavor to the earthiness of the root vegetables.
