The most important rule of making this salad: it’s not your thread. In the variant “what’s the difference what to cut, all the same, everything is boiled,” you’ll get a strange look and taste a lot with a soft tasteless vegetables. If you want a delicious salad, slice vegetables correctly. So…
Hard green tomatoes cut lengthwise, and then cut into slices in half a centimeter thick along the fruit.
Carrots in no case do not RUB on a regular grater! RUB only on “Korean” grater or cut into strips manually

Onions cut into half rings
The amount of vegetables placed in a 5 litre pot. Fold the chopped vegetables into the pan, add salt and sugar, mix with hands. Cover the bowl and leave in a cool place (refrigerator, balcony) for 12-24 hours.
The longer the vegetables are, the more dense they become in the finished salad, I always leave for 24 hours.
After 24 hours, pour the vegetables with vinegar and oil put on the stove and bring to a boil. Stir only after they boil. Simmer 10 minutes, never stir! The less stirring, the better.
Dill is better to take with the young delicate umbrellas, so the salad is more aromatic and delicious. But in the absence of, you can just dill
Add to the contents of the pan chopped dill, Bay leaf and pepper. Pepper can take beans or ground – how more like. Simmer for another 5 minutes, stir in the end.

In hot sterile jars put boiling salad, hot roll covers (or close screw-on lids). Banks turn over on a towel, wrap up with something warm and leave to cool down.
