This herring salad has few layers of ingredients with herring on the bottom of it, that is why it is usually called Herring under a blanket. This is one of my favorite herring dishes for Christmas Eve and Christmas.

Herring salad in a bowl


  • 3 fillets salted herring
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 4 medium beetroots baked or cooked grated
  • 4 medium potatoes
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 2 eggs cooked hard
  • 4tbs mayonnaise
  • 2 tbs thick yogurt
  • salt, pepper
  1. Cook potatoes and carrots in a peel.
  2. Cut herring into small cubes, mix with finely chopped onions, add pepper. Put on the bottom of the bowl.
  3. Mix mayonnaise with yogurt.
  4. Grated beetroots mix with 3 tbs of mayonnaise sauce and cover the herring in a bowl.
  5. Cut potatoes into small cubes- this would be the next layer in a bowl.
  6. Cut carrots finely and mix with mayo sauce left. Cover with it potatoes’ layer in a bowl.
  7. Grate eggs on small wholes grater and finish the bowl with it.

The salad is the best on the next day, when the flavors are mixed. Enjoy! Smacznego!
