Herring, Beef and Potato Salad
Even my German in-laws that were loved this salad and raved about
they were amazed that an American could produce even an
classic German combination herring, potatoes
and beets! And here they were, gobbling it up... wunderbar!
may have come from an ancient issue of
2 large boiling potatoes [firm-cooking,
1 pound cooked roast beef
12 ounces pickled herring, drained
(reserve some liquid),
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup homemade or best-
1 tablespoon wine vinegar
1 teaspoon snipped fresh dill
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 cup chopped dill pickles
1 cup chopped pickled beets
3/4 cup chopped red onion
In a saucepan of boiling salted water boil the potatoes for 20
until they are tender. Drain them and let them cool. Peel the potatoes and
them into slices or cubes, as you prefer. (Mama Mizzi would most assuredly
slice them and then insist that this is the only correct method.
What can I say? She should know...) Cut the roast beef into cubes.
In a bowl, combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, wine vinegar, dill
Dijon mustard. Add a little reserved pickled herring liquid, enough to
dressing to the consistency you prefer.
In a large bowl combine the potatoes, beef, herring, dill pickles,
beets and red onion. Add the dressing and combine mixture well. Chill
covered, for at least 4 hours. Serve with buttered dark bread.
Serves 8. (Don't forget the beer! German beer, please...)
