First, chop the onion and place it in a bowl with water, apple cider vinegar, salt, and sugar to remove some bitterness. Leave for 15 minutes.

Grate the boiled potatoes and place them on top of the mayo. Spread this potato layer with more mayo.

Next add the cooked and grated carrots as the next layer. Spread this layer with more mayo.

You can leave the Shuba salad in the fridge until the next day for best results. Enjoy this colorful salad as an appetizer!
