Heringstopf Mit Saurer Sahne (Herring Salad with Sour Cream)

READY IN: 5hrs
Recipe by -Sylvie-

I grew up in North-Rhine Westphalia, in Germany, where this is eaten quite regularly. I adopted this recipe from Recipezaar as it didn't have a home and I thought it'd be nice to actually make this recipe, also known as Herringsstip, as I usually just buy it ready made. I'll update once I've made it, but if you make it before me, please let me know what you think!
