How to make Dressed Herring?
Dressed Herring or as they call “Herring Under a Fur Coat” is a salad of Russian cuisine. Salad is popular in the former USSR countries (Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and others). This salad is prepared in every family in winter, when there is a lot of snow outside and Christmas is on the doorstep. This is Russian comfort seasonal food.
The salad consists of several layers of vegetables and fillets of spicy herring. In the salad, a little mayonnaise is put between each layer and a tablespoon of it is distributed over the entire surface of the vegetable layer. Mayonnaise is usually used from the store, but some make homemade mayonnaise. The peculiarity of the salad is that the last layer turns pink due to the mixing of mayonnaise and boiled beet juices.
After cooking, the salad is put in the refrigerator for a couple of hours, so that the layers are soaked. The shelf life of the salad in the refrigerator is 3-4 days. But it doesn’t stay there that long 🙂
