This is one of my favourite Russian salads. The success of this recipe is in the herring, if it is fresh, slightly salted your salad will be unforgettable. Thin vegetable layers saturated with Russian style mayonnaise on the top of herring slices can't leave you indifferent to this Russian cooking chef d'oeuvre.
2 ea thick salted herrings (matthias)
5 ea potatoes
4 ea carrots
4 ea beets
5 ea eggs
1 lb mayonnaise

Boil vegetables until they are ready ( you can boil vegetables in 1 pan). Boil eggs hard.
Peel skin from herrings, cut them along the spine. Take all bones away. Cut herring meat
into very little pieces and always check for bones. Take a large dish. Put herring meat
evenly on the bottom. If you like onion, you can put little pieces of onion on the herring.
Then spread mayonnaise evenly (thin layer).Grind potatoes and make the next
layer of it. Spread mayonnaise. Use a fork to plane the layers. Then goes carrot (grind, put, spread). Then you do the same with 4 eggs and beets. Spread mayonnaise on the beets and
grind 1 egg on it to make the dish beautiful. This salad must look like a cake.
Put the dish in the fridge for an hour.
Selyodka pod Shouboy is served as an appetizer.
