4. Also chop the boiled carrots and french beans. Alternatively, you can chop the veggies first and boil them later. I usually avoid doing the latter as when we chop the veggies and then boil them, some water- soluble vitamins and minerals are lost in the process. It is better to first boil them whole and then chop them. Measure and keep all the ingredients ready for making the veg russian salad.
