Shuba (Fur Coat Salad)

Share

Shuba (Fur Coat Salad) is a layered salad whose primary ingredient is herring. In Russian, shuba is a fur or fur-lined overcoat or cloak. So this dish is known as herring under a fur coat! It consists of layers of diced pickled herring, grated boiled vegetables, chopped onions and mayonnaise. It is most commonly eaten at Christmas or New Year but I like to make it in summer too!

Start by boiling the vegetables and grating them. Chop herring and onion. The most important part of this recipe is the layering. I advise that you follow my order for two reasons: placing the heaviest layer (potatoes) at the bottom helps keep the salad sturdy. Next add layers of onions, herring, carrots, mayonnaise, beets and finish the salad with another thin layer of mayonnaise on top.

To make Shuba (Fur Coat Salad), you will need the following ingredients:
