Sill Sallad - Herring Salad

My contribution to our Swedish traditional Christmas Smörgåsbord  was Herring Salad.  I acquired a taste for this dish a few years back as I wasn't accustomed to eating the Sill Sallad.

Herring Salad 


  • 1 small jar pickled herring
  • 3 cold boiled potatoes
  • 5 sweet pickled beets
  • 2 apples
  • 1 tsp salt or pickled cucumber
  • 2 Tbsp chopped onions
  • 100ml beet  juice
  • 100 ml whipped cream (whipped stiff)
  • Decoration (parsley/dill, chopped egg)


Cut all the ingredients into small cubes and mix.
Add beet juice and fold in cream.
Decorate with chopped eggs and chopped parsley or dill.
