Made as written for ZWT-9 & a fellow Goddess, this recipe was reduced to 2 servings - BUT DH is not due home from a fishing trip until tomorrow night & his portion may disappear. Most people have a love or hate relationship w/herring, but this salad is so good that it could turn haters into lovers. I esp liked the veggie mix I had never eaten w/herring before & the sweetness the sugar added. Every piece of the recipe works to its advantage. Do not skip the chill time as it does enhance the flavors & I suggest draining the liquid from the salad prior to serving. Thx for sharing this sure-to-be-repeated recipe w/us. Yum!.
