Herring and Beet Salad

  • Yields: 8-10 servings
  • Prep Time: 1 hr
  • Cook Time: 20 min

Ingredients

  • 3 filets of salt cured herring (a la Matias)*
  • 1 large beet (2 cups cubed)
  • 3 medium potatoes (2 cups cubed)
  • 1 apple
  • 4 medium pickles
  • 1/3 cup of raisins (cranberries or diced dried plums will also do)
  • 1/3 cup of walnuts
  • 2 heaping tbs of mayo
  • Ground pepper and salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Place herring filets in a bowl with cold water and let soak for about 1 hour. This will remove the strong salty flavor.

  2. Wash your beet and boil unpeeled in salted water until soft. Do the same with the potatoes. Once cooked, cool then peel and dice into an even dice. Place in a large mixing bowl.

  3. Dice apple, pickles, onions and walnuts and add to beets and potatoes. Add raisins and mayo and mix gently.

  4. Remove herring from water and pat dry. Dice into an even dice and add to the salad. Sprinkle with ground pepper and salt to taste. Mix gently to combine all ingredients.

  5. Refrigerate until serving.

Notes

* herring a la Matias filets are sold packaged in oil, or in salt brine. This recipe requires salt cured herring filets, not vinegar or wine sauce herring.
