A fresh and spicy herring salad to enjoy herring in another way than from the tail, very nice as an appetizer, entrée or snack.
  • 4 Dutch new herrings, cubes
  • 1 small onion, small cubes
  • 1 sour apple, cubes
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp sour cream
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Tabasco
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • vodka
  1. Make a well seasoned sauce of the mayonnaise, sour cream, salt, pepper, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce and a splash of vodka.
  2. Mix together with the herring, onion and apple.
  3. Serve.
Instead of Dutch new herrings you can use ordinary soused herring/salted herring (herring prepared the same way, but not from the new herring season; the name depends on the county you live). Can be prepared in advance, store in closed container.
