My Mutti's Herring Salad is such an easy dish to make for a perfect quick supper. Our kids LOVE this! Really. It's creamy and sweet and sour! Wunderbar. Aka, Heringsalat, it's such a traditional German food that's so easy and fast to make. For our family, all that's needed are some boiled potatoes and dinner or lunch is ready. Yes, that quick!
This also makes a great German appetizer. Serve it with crackers or crusty
Fast, easy, delicious, and very traditional, why not try it for supper tonight!
Just mix the leftover salad, some leftover cooked potatoes, and some sliced or cubed pickled beets ...
you have Herring and Potato Salad. A pretty pink-colored salad that was my Mutti's favorite salad to make for buffets. For the actual recipe, check it out here.
Especially useful after a day at work and shopping and in need of something delicious and quick.
First I'd put the potatoes on to boil.
Even faster, though, I'd do them in the microwave. Using new potatoes was best.
While they were cooking, I would start the herring salad. Finished!
A super supper ready in almost no time at all.
