There are few ingredients in our salad that are vital. You are likely to find cabbage, or lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumber. Least likely it is to find onions and peppers. And some people serve beets boiled soft and sprinkled with sugar alongside the main salad.
Try this salad with the ingredients you like the most.
