    This salad looks beautiful and has got a rather beautiful name as well. I loved the contrast of texture in this salad. The herring was soft and the beet and onion gave crunchiness to the salad.

    I am not a great fan of carrots so I skipped that layer. Still the salad tasted good. When I told my family at dinner the name of the salad they were like (O.O) this and only after having the salad did they understand why this salad had this weird name. 😀
