Delicious Food: Herring under Cover

Today we shall make a very tasty and juicy salad with you.

‘Herring under Cover’ is a very popular dish in Russia

It is cooked for big holidays and birthdays.

1. We will need 2 or 3 fat salty herrings

Or you can buy in pieces

Herring is an excellent dish itself

We shall create the salad as composed of layers with mayonnaise between each coat.

A bucket of mayonnaise is good for this dish

2. Boil potatoes, carrots and beet

3. Cut herrings to small pieces and remove bones, of course

4. Cut onions and place pieces as layer over the herring

5. Put the layer of mayonnaise over onions

6. Grate potatoes and form a layer

7. Put rich quantity of mayonnaise over potatoes.

8. Grate carrots and form a layer, then add mayonnaise over it.

9. Finally, grate beet, form a layer and cover it with mayonnaise.

We do not salt layers, as herring pieces contain enough of it.

This is what we have

This is how our layers look

This salad must kept for 2-3 hours in your kitchen before serving (not in the fridge). Layers will be soaked with mayonnaise.

The salad is ready. You can decorate the top with your fantasy.

This salad I cook not only at home, but for my friends in different countries. They always ask for it.
Bonne appetite!
