This classic Russian winter recipe, Russian Shuba Salad, is a great cold salad traditionally layered with potatoes, onion, carrots, eggs, beets, mayonnaise, & pickled herring. But I used Northern Pike caught while ice fishing here in North Dakota. For the pickled pike, you can use Hank Shaw’s recipe, found here.
