Vegetable and herring salad.
In Italy we call it « Insalata russa » while in Russia it's known as « Italian salad », but apparently its origin is French: good recipes travel long distances!
Before you start
Must be prepared one day in advance.
- Soak the herring filets in soy milk for about 1 h, drain, pat dry, and cut into small pieces. Set aside.
- Prepare the vegetables: peel the potatoes and cut them in half; peel the carrots and cut them into large chunks; trim the ends of the green beans. Place the vegetables in a steamer basket or in a pot of salted water to either boil or steam for about 15 min, depending on the vegetable type. Cook the peas 3-4 min separately. Let cool down the vegetables about 1 h, then cut them into 1 cm dices and put them in a salad bowl.
- Peel the apple, discard the core, then dice and add to the vegetables. Add the herring filets and capers.
- In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise with the soy yogurt then pour over the salad. Adjust the seasoning, then toss. Cover with plastic wrap then chill for at least 8 h or overnight.
- Let stand 30 min at room temperature before serving.
