Russian Cabbage and Beet Salad
"This salad is irresistible - colorful and delicious! You must keep it under a press overnight (or for 24 hours) and then in the fridge for best results. It tastes much better if you keep it in the fridge for a couple of days before eating."

Original recipe yields 16 servings (8 pint jars)
- Combine cabbage, carrots, beet, and garlic in a large glass bowl.
- Stir together water, sugar, salt, and pepper in a large saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Stir in vinegar and oil and heat for 30 seconds, but do not boil anymore.
- Pour hot brine over vegetables and stir to combine. Place a plate on top of the vegetables and weigh down with a bowl of water or a full can of beans. Press at room temperature, 8 hours to overnight.
- Transfer salad into 8 pint-size jars, seal, and store in the refrigerator.
- Cook's Note:
- I often make a ginger variation for my husband (he's a big fan). I grate some fresh ginger into each jar in step 4. It gives it a very interesting, aromatic flavor.
