  • Main Ingredients: Herring, Beans, Onions, Carrots, Peppers, Salad
  • Portion2-3


Salad bowl, kitchen knife, cutting board, plate, tablespoon.


Step 1: chop the herring.

Rinse herring fillet with cold water and dry, then cut the fish into thin strips or cubes.

Step 2: chop the vegetables.

Peel, wash and chop the carrots and peppers in thin strips, and red onion with feathers or half rings.
I also cut a few ringlets from the onion to decorate the finished salad with them on top.

Step 3: prepare the lettuce.

Rinse the lettuce and disassemble it into leaves. Lay the salad on a flat dish, it will be a kind of pillow and decor.

Step 4: mix vegetables with herring.

Mix chopped vegetables, herring and beans in a bowl (strain it from the liquid and rinse with water), add lemon juice, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Mix everything very carefully.

Step 5: put the salad on lettuce.

Put the ready-made salad on lettuce leaves and decorate the top with fresh herbs, herring rolls with lemon or, like me, onion rings.

Step 6: serve bean salad with herring.

Serve bean salad with herring as a snack or as an addition to main dishes. Tasty and very beautiful on the table. At the end of the feast, nothing will be left from the salad!
Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- Salt in this salad is not needed, as the fish is quite salty in itself.
