Working time: 15 min

Total preparation: 15 min


    • 1 jar of pickled herring

    • 500 g beetroot (pre-cooked)

    • 1 large onion

    • 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.


      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


      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!).


      Done! Let the drinks begin.

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