Herring Salad

Herring Salad

This versatile salad, a marriage of tart and sweet flavors and tender and crunchy textures, can be arranged in a pretty glass bowl and served in a variety of ways. You can make it as an appetizer or cocktail party tidbit accompanied by crackers or cocktail rye bread, or as part of a Sunday brunch buffet served with toasted bagels or pumpernickel bread, or you can double the portions and use the salad as an entree. If you double the recipe, be sure to double the exchange values or carbohydrate counts, too.
