Suitsulohega Kasukas (Layered Smoked Salmon and Vegetable Salad)

Country: Estonia
Course: Salad
Makes: 6 to 8 servings


  • 7 oz smoked salmon
  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 large beets, steamed or boiled (I steamed mine)
  • 3 medium carrots, unpeeled
  • 1 1/2 cups good-quality mayonnaise
  • 2 eggs


  1. Boil the carrots and potatoes until just soft. Don't over boil them! Drain and cool, then peel and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the eggs. Cool and peel.
  3. Roughly chop the smoked salmon and then scatter over the bottom of a large glass serving bowl. Grate the potatoes over the salmon, and then scatter the onion over that.
  4. Spread about half of the mayo over the onions, then grate the beets over the mayo. Top with the grated carrots, then with the last layer of mayonnaise. Now grate the boiled eggs over the mayo.
