Dressed herring, colloquially known as herring under a fur coat (Russian: Селёдка под шубой, tr. selyodka pod shuboy or just Russian: Шуба, tr. shuba) is a layered salad composed of diced pickled herring covered with layers of grated boiled vegetables (potatoes, carrots, beet roots), chopped onions, and mayonnaise. Some variations of this dish include a layer of fresh grated apple while some do not.
Dressed herring salad is popular in Russia, Ukraine (Ukrainian: Оселедець під шубою, translit. oceledets pid shuboyu), Belarus (Belarusian: Селядзец пад футрам, translit. selyadets pad futram) and other countries of the former USSR (Lithuanian: Silkė pataluose, Latvian: Siļķe kažokā, Polish: Śledź pod pierzynką). It is one of the traditional dishes served as zakuski at New Year (Novy God) and Christmas celebrations.
