Cooking herring "under a fur coat" without mayonnaise:

Step 1: Cut the fish.

Everything is as usual. We separate the head, remove the skin from the fish and conscientiously remove all, even the smallest, bones. Now cut the resulting fillet into small cubes and let it wait in the wings. Be sure to try if the herring is too salty. You may need to soak it for some time in milk or strong cold tea.

Step 2: prepare the vegetables.

Onions must be peeled and cut into small cubes. And now we’ll send it to the same plate, to the herring, squeeze out the juice from half the lemon and mix well. Carrots, beets and potatoes must be peeled and rubbed separately on a coarse grater. Put them in separate bowls. Meanwhile, let’s take care of gelatin ourselves.

Step 3: dissolve the gelatin.

Pour the contents of the bag into a bowl, fill it with cold water and let it stand for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, let us heat the water in a small pan. Is it boiling? We put a bowl of gelatin on the pan and let it melt in a water bath. But he has yet to cool. We need gelatin cold.

Step 4: preparing a gas station.

Instead of mayonnaise, we will use a somewhat unexpected mixture. Mix yogurt with mustard and honey, add salt and mix well. The severity of the dish will depend on which mustard we choose. Orient yourself. Honey can be slightly warmed before kneading. Only slightly. Otherwise, the aroma may remain, but the mass of useful properties of honey may disappear when heated. We divide the resulting mass into four parts and add each in turn to herring with onions and lemon juice, to carrots, beets and potatoes. Of course, the contents of each bowl should be mixed well.

Step 5: form a salad.

We take on the form in which we will lay out layer by layer. Its bottom must be covered with cling film. And now we lay on it in layers, first half of the beets, then half the carrots, potatoes, all the fish with onions, again potatoes, carrots and beets. Remained a sheer smallness. We will send the finished salad for the night in the refrigerator.

Step 6: serve.

In the morning, we gently remove the frozen mass along with the film from the mold, put it on the dish and decorate the salad. How? There is already a field for your imagination. The easiest option is a boiled egg, grated on a fine grater. Enjoy your meal!
