Dutch herring salad with apple and sour cream

Dutch herring salad with apple and sour cream

from WorkandPlay
Serves 4 as a starter or light lunch

- 4 herrings, cut into bitesize pieces (preferable the Dutch way: raw. If that scares you or if it's unavailable you can use jarred, pickled herrings or use smoked mackerel. Any salty, firm, oily fish will do. And fish oil is good for you!)
- 3 green apples, cored and cubed (peeled if you prefer, but you will lose the 'crunch')
- some horseradish (roughly grated fresh is best, but the kind from a jar is fine too)
- 2 stalks celery, chopped (optional)
- 1/2 red onion, chopped
- 1 cup sour cream (low fat is fine, as is a mixture of sour cream and mild yoghurt)
- 1 T sugar
- some shredded cabbage (I like red cabbage, but savoy or green works too. You may substitute lettuce)

Mix the apple and (optional) celery pieces with the sour cream (and yoghurt if you are using it), sugar, onions and horseradish.
Serve apple salad on top of some shredded cabbage and place the fish on top.
Serve with toast.
