    Traditional part of a Danish smorgasbord. Always part of Christmas buffet. Lovely color and great taste (if you like pickled herring)

      I love this recipe. It is so nutritious, particularly for older people, as beetroot is now known to help dementia and brain function, not to mention the herring. I use fresh beetroot. Always a winner.

      Delicious! I made it with preroasted baby beets from Trader Joe's. And used red onion.

      I made this for my progressive dinner group as an appetizer. The presentation was very colorful and I had raves throughout from the group. I could not find the marinated herring so I opted for smoked herring; drained the oil and covered the fish with red wine and allowed it to marinate overnight. I doubled the recipe and used 5-6 small potatoes. I also added sea salt and white pepper to taste.
