Belarusian Beef Salad (Paparats Kvetka)

(mydeliciousmeals.com)
This salad got its name from the fern flower (Paparats Kvetka), a magic flower in Slavic mythology. Slices of beef, ham, tomatoes and cucumbers high-light this attractive main-dish salad. Marinated onion adds a special touch to it, a nice change from usual salads.

Instructions

1. Place the meat in a pot, cover it with water. Bring the pot to a boil, put a cover on it so the water doesn't all evaporate, and then set it to a gentle boil. Cook for about 40 minutes. (You can fry the beef for 5 minutes on each side instead).
2. Mix vinegar, sugar and salt in a deep plate. Slice the onion and put in the mixture. Let stand for about 15 minutes.

4. Divide each ingredient in 2 or 3 parts (depending on the size of servings you want to get). Arrange 1 part of the ingredients on each serving plate (I arranged each ingredient to form a triangle).
5. It's best served chilled. Dress the salad with mayonnaise right before eating.
