Making beetroot and prune salad:

Step 1: Prepare the ingredients.

First of all, thoroughly wash the beets with a brush and put it to cook. On the stove in the pan, it will be ready in 40-50 minutes, in a pressure cooker, things will go faster and the vegetable will be cooked in 30-35 minutes. And this ingredient can also be prepared using modern household appliances, for example, in a multicooker in the "Baking" mode for 40 minutes, and if cut into pieces, then only 15 minutes. Dip the finished beets in ice water, and then peel them off, easily peeling it off with a knife. After cleaning, grind it with a grater.

Walnuts also need to be chopped. You can do this with a knife or a blender, if you have this irreplaceable assistant on the farm.
Peel the cloves of garlic and, like nuts, chop them very finely with a kitchen knife.
Put the prunes in a colander and pour a small amount of boiling water. Wait for excess moisture to drain, transfer dried fruits to a chopping board, remove the seeds and chop them into small pieces, stripes or cubes.

Step 2: Cook the beetroot and prune salad.

In a deep plate, place all the ingredients one after another. Mix your salad well with seasoning with mayonnaise. Do not rush to salt, many people like this salad without salt. So I recommend that you first try it, and then decide for yourself whether you need to add salt to the dish or not.

Recipe Tips:

- Instead of mayonnaise, you can use vegetable oil. And it does not have to be sunflower or olive; the taste of the salad will depend on the choice of oil.

- If you take pre-boiled beets, then the salad preparation time will be reduced many times.

- Often noticed that in recipes it is recommended not to use boiled beets, but baked in the oven. The taste of the salad from this really becomes more interesting.
