Herrings for dinner - herring salad with baked potatoes

Herring salad is a dish for breakfast, dinner and also for lunch. And if herring is for dinner, it must be served with hot baked potatoes.

This is a great idea for the so-called. Friday lunch, when many people treat this day as fish day. Thanks to the fact that we prepare the salad the day before, the only task will be to wash and bake the potatoes an hour before dinner.

For baking potatoes, I recommend a clay pot, the so-called roman pot. Dishes prepared in such a pot are tasty and healthy. Enamel pots are a great solution, because they do not need to be soaked in water before baking.
