Russian potato salad recipe with herring and mushrooms
Potato salad with smoked herring and mushrooms was never particularly diet. And that means, and advise it to everyone, without exception, it would not be correct. But it's so delicious. Insanely delicious. Especially since we do not pechёm cakes and bake in the oven pork leg every day (although such individuals, I know). And periodically, "on holidays", and you can prepare this simple and delicious salad of herring and mushrooms.
The first step is put to cook the potatoes. Not a lot, 250 ... 300 grams would be sufficient. But to take this young, or vice versa, stale, decide for yourself. It all depends on the season and on your stocks. Boil until done (15 to 25 minutes, depending on the size) and then cool it to room temperature.
One large herring (smoked better, she is richer and more interesting taste) clean from the inside, head, fins and bones. You should get two of the same fish fillets.
They need to be cut and put in a salad bowl capacious, where we mix all the ingredients.
Two small fresh cucumber mine,
and finely chop enough. And as you may have guessed, we shift them to the herring.
200 grams (or so) Throw mushrooms in a colander. Since they must be completely drain the brine, or our salad of herring and mushrooms will be a very "wet". This is not desirable.
Small onion (preferably not "evil") pure-my,
finely cut and send in a salad bowl.
Meanwhile, cook and even had time to cool down a little potato. Her cut into small cubes, and we place the other components of the herring salad with mushrooms.
Add the mushrooms, from which managed to drain the marinade.
And so our herring salad and mushrooms was even more fresh, summer, it does not add canned and fresh green peas. And it is bright green and tender as the older generation remembers, "brain sorts."
Of course we need to do a pea pod shell while we throw away. Just need a good Zhmenya peas, then it takes 17 ... 20 full-length pods.
We refill our herring salad with mushrooms mayonnaise (some three ... four tablespoons will be enough)
all together and mix well. Herring salad with mushrooms ready, and as you can see, nothing complicated in its preparation no. On the contrary, everything is pretty simple.
Serve it immediately, because tastes are not quite "one of the opera" will be interesting combination. However, there is a risk that very soon you will want to repeat the experience again. But it's nice and very tasty "danger".
