"Herring under a Fur Coat" sounds strange but so yummy!

Gastronomy Marusya

Salted herring completes the salted and canned goods quartet that is often used in Russian cuisine. The other three being canned goby fish, salted sprats and smoked mackerel.
Salted, smoked herring or herring in oil traditionally serves with boiled potatoes, chopped chives and crisp dark rye bread.
Also you can prepare special salad, calls "Herring under a Fur Coat". It is a traditional layered salad made of finely chopped pickled herring, eggs, beets, carrots, potatoes and some type of dressing, either mayonnaise or a sour cream base.
Make sure to prepare this salad at least 6 hours in advance so it can be chilled properly and sliced to show off the layers. This pretty salad can be a meat-free meal, side dish or served on a buffet table with other salads.

* 4 large unpeeled carrots (boiled, cooled, peeled, and finely chopped or shredded)
* 3 large beets boiled in their skins (cooled, peeled, and finely chopped or shredded)
* 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
* 1 medium or large (depending on taste) red or yellow onion (finely chopped)

Just remove the vegetables that become tender but not mushy and continue cooking the rest.

7. Then layer the remainder of the onion and carrots, all of the chopped eggs and black pepper to taste, the remainder of the mayonnaise, and the remainder of the beets and pack down.
