Need help with a most delicious salad

There used to be an Eastern European grocery store/deli on 108th street in Forest Hills that made a salad that they called vinaigrette. The salad consisted of cubed beets, cubed white potatoes, chopped pickles and sauerkraut. I think that's all that was in there. It was one of the best cold salads I've had, but they closed up shop about 5 years ago, and we've been without the salad ever since. I've tried to make it myself but haven't been succesful. Anyone know of a recipe or of a real name for this ssalad that I can use to look up a recipe? Thanks in advance for your help. By the way, all of the cubed elements were very small so I'm guessing they were commercial ingredients.

      Thanks, you're right, that looks like the recipe. I'll try it tomorrow!

    2. Just a FYI, there's a European grocery store on Metropolitan Avenue in Middle Village that carries a lot of Polish goods. It sounds like you might be more interested in Russian foods though -- then it's off to Brighton Beach, Brooklyn.
