Rach says this beautiful beet, potato and carrot salad "is so brilliant, I can't stand how in love I am with it." The method of boiling the beets, adding the other vegetables, boiling them and then letting the entire mixture sit overnight is a classic Ukrainian technique. It does require planning ahead, but the recipe is very simple. She adds that she's going to make the dish, which she likes to serve with her Chicken Kyiv, all during the warm months of the year.
Place beets in pot, cover with water and bring to boil. Boil beets for 20 minutes, add potatoes and carrots and boil 10 minutes more. Cover the pot and let stand at room temperature overnight.
Wipe peels off the beets, peel potatoes and chop beets, potatoes and carrots. Combine in a bowl with onions, garlic pickles, brine, dill and parsley. Add chickpeas, dress salad with good olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Make a boat of lettuce leaves and fill with chilled salad.
