Not bad.The only thing is-better to use rich taste sunflower oil. And if you want it to be more colorful cook potato and carrot in another sausepan. When it is cooled cut potato first and mix it...

Family friends would make this all the time! I love this recipe! I add extra dill pickles! YUM!

Fantastic! Real taste of home, thanks!!!
