Note: this is a traditional German salad.
Note: needs to be left overnight for at least two, preferably three, nights.

Serves: 6.

  4. Pour the liquid pickling ingredients over the top and leave in the fridge overnight.
  5. Remove the herring pieces from the liquid and mix them into the other salad ingredients in a bowl; leave overnight in the fridge if you can.
