To taste, it comes out the same as the classic one, only it looks much more spectacular. To significantly reduce the cooking time, it is best to bake the beets in the oven in advance, and boil the vegetables that are needed to make the salad cake until tender.
It is advisable to serve such a salad cake to the table after it has stood for a while, and all products have been soaked in sauce. Usually, this procedure takes about an hour. If you want to make a salad much earlier than the holiday, then feel free to cook it in the evening and send it to the refrigerator overnight.
