Beet - Potato Salad (maybe TaxLady can share it's real name--but that's what we call it). My grandmother made this with whipping cream (whipped), my aunt with mayo, I make it with sour cream + some milk to thin it a bit.
1 jar pickled herring, chopped (and drained) (or sardines?)
1-1/2 c cold boiled potatoes, chopped in cubes
1-1/2 c cold boiled beets (or 1-1/2 c pickled beets) cubed
3/4 c grated apple (Granny Smith is my favorite to use)
2 T cider vinegar (or white)
2 T sugar
3/4 c whipping cream (whipped light--not stiff) or mayo or sour cream thinned with some milk
6 hard boiled eggs, sliced
Combine the first 5 ingredients, add in the liquid and sugar, fold in cream/mayo/sour cream. Pack into a greased bowl. Chill overnight. Unmold on a bed of lettuce, garnish with egg slices and chopped parsley. This is so simple--I'm embarrassed.
