  • 1. Coarsely grate carrots, potatoes and beets. Place each ingredient in a separate bowl. Mix onions and diced herring. Arrange at the bottom of a large serving plate. Place the grated potatoes in a layer on top of the diced cured fish so they fully cover it. Spread over 2-3 tablespoons of mayonnaise. Place a layer of grated carrots above the mayonnaise. Spread a rich layer of mayonnaise again. Mix the remaining mayonnaise with the grated beets and cover the salad tower on all sides. Grate hard-boiled eggs over the Shuba. Serve cold or lukewarm.
