Sour herring salad

Quantity: large container for 6 to 10 people depending on what you use it for

Complexity: easy

Working time: 15 min

Total preparation: 15 min

    Ingredients

    • 1 jar of pickled herring

    • 500 g beetroot (pre-cooked)

    • 1 large onion

    • 100 g pickles/cornichons

    • 3 tbsp mayonnaise (you can also replace Turkish yogurt)

    • some pepper

    Other supplies

    plastic container or glass bowl (both sealable)

      I can be really hungry for this sometimes. Fresh and sour on a piece of toast (nice and retro), toasted sandwich, baguette or just a scoop in your mouth! Just made, tasty, evening in the fridge, chilled...... delicious on a hot day with drinks!!

      Mis en place

      Chop the onion.

      Cut the gherkins/cornichons small.

      Cut the beets into cubes of half a cm (but not very carefully, not too small and not large chunks....)

      You can even grate, but I prefer cubes.

      Herring:

      Remove the dorsal fin from the pegs,

      Cut the halves apart and place on top of each other

      cut in half lengthwise

      Cut the strips into pieces of 0.5 to 1 cm

      Preparation

      Pour everything into the bowl or plastic container.

      Add some fresh pepper.

      Stir well so that everything has a faint red/pink color (it doesn't look like much! but it tastes good!).

      Samples!

      Done! Let the drinks begin.

      Also delicious with 3 or 4 boiled potatoes cut into pieces.
