This recipe reveals my Russian roots. The major ingredients in the salad are herring, vegetables roots and dressing. I make it only on special occasions, and today it is for the new 2017 year. Even though the salad looks quite simple, there is a lot of preparation behind it :).
The salad is made by layers of vegetables covering the herring. More layers contribute to testier salad. There are so many versions of this salad and here is my way:
Preparation time: ~40 minutes, cook time: ~60 minutes.
- Potatoes – 2 lb.
- Beets – 2 lb.
- Carrots – 2 lb.
- Herring Fillets – 1 lb.
- Mayonnaise – 200 ml
Cook potatoes, carrots and beets unpeeled till soft and not too much. Cool in the fridge for at least an hour. Peel and shred individually into separate bowls. Chop the herring to a bowl. In a transparent bowl, layer the ingredients in two levels:
first level: potatoes < herring < carrots < beets < mayonnaise
second level: potatoes < herring < carrots < beets < mayonnaise
Enjoy and Happy New Year!!!
