Dressed herring, colloquially known as herring under a fur coat (Russian: Селёдка под шубой, tr. selyodka pod shuboy or just Russian: Шуба, tr. shuba), is a layered salad composed of diced pickled herring covered with layers of grated boiled vegetables (potatoes, carrots, beetroots), chopped onions, and mayonnaise. Some variations of this dish include a layer of fresh grated apple while some do not.
A final layer of grated boiled beetroot covered with mayonnaise is what gives the salad its characteristic rich purple color. Dressed herring salad is often decorated with grated boiled eggs (whites, yolks, or both).
Dressed herring salad is popular in Russia, Ukraine (Ukrainian: Оселедець під шубою, romanized: oseledets pid shuboyu), Belarus (Belarusian: Селядзец пад футрам, romanized: selyadzets pad futram) and other countries of the former USSR (Lithuanian: Silkė pataluose, Latvian: Siļķe kažokā). It is especially popular for holidays, and is commonly served as zakuski at New Year (Novy God) and Christmas celebrations in Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan.
