Sałatka ze śledziem, burakiem i jajkiem. Warstwowa Szuba.

Herrings under a fur coat. “Szuba”. Herring salad.

Herrings under a fur coat is a popular, in Eastern Borderlands, herring salad. It is also known there as `szuba`. Colourful and easy to prepare and delicious! I recommend it for all lovers of herrings ;-) This herring salad will be great as a meal for a Christmas Eve supper. Szuba, that is, herrings under a fur coat, is a multi-layered salad, which can be prepared in many ways. However, thanks to my readers, I found out that there are always herrings, onion, boiled potatoes, beetroots, eggs and mayonnaise. However, carrot or pickled cucumbers are often added. This time, I made a traditional version with boiled carrots ;-)
