With the help of my sous chef Hubby I made this for Ukrainian Christmas Eve on Jan 6th. I have had this twice before, once served on Christmas Day, the other was brought to my house for the 6th. Both time, this salad had been served in a pie plate…I never tasted it at Zoryanna’s place as thought it was a dessert, then it was all gone. She had used herring for the dish. This salad is called Herring under a Fur Coat. "Oseledetsʹ pid Koshoha". It really is a layering of root vegetables Some of the recipes adds mayo to each layer, I only added Mayo to the potato layer and topping using mayo and sour cream. The dish brought to my place had mushrooms in place of herring, which I did in this case.
|Grated beets, grated carrots, grated potatoes, mixture of beefs and mayo, chopped eggs.|
A mould was used to assemble the salad. The size of the mould could have been smaller as served as a side with the traditional Christmas Eve meal. The large size was 3 1/4 inches, where as the smaller size was 2 1/2. The smaller size is in the middle of the plate.
