Dressed herring, known colloquially as herring under a fur coat, is a Russian layered salad made up of diced pickled herring filled with layers of rubbed vegetables, chopped onions, and mayonnaise.
Some of this dish’s variants include a layer of freshly grated apple while others do not. What brings the salad its distinctive dark purple colour is a final layer of grated boiled beetroot coated with mayonnaise. Herring salad dressed is often filled with rubbed eggs (whites, yolks, or both).
The traditional layered salad, known as shuba or seledka pod shubo ubiquitous, takes its name from the salad’s outer layer. Many people choose to cover the preparation with mayonnaise dressing, so it looks like a white fur coat, while others use beets.
