I'm originally from Sweden and the traditional christmas dinner is a glazed and baked ham.  That is served with potatoes, other root crops, a variety of veggies - and the famous 'Sill Salad'.  Well, its not famous yet so lets get to work!

'Sill' is swedish for herring and sill salad is made from pickled herrings - thos matjas things but I prefer the simpler pickled jars (the one from our local supermarket is the  best I've found yet).  This is mixed with pickled beets (not easy to find) and diced potatoes, gerkins, onion and apple.  Traditionally the salad has to be made several days before the meal to let the flavours mix but I never have time so here is my not so traditional Sill Salad - with a quick fix to deal with the issue of the pickled beets:

Elise’s Speedy Sill Salad

 

200 gm boiled, diced potatoes

Cool a bit

200 gm boiled, diced beets, cool (in cold water if in hurry) then soak in red wine vinegar for ~1 hr (or longer)

 

150gm pickled sill

Diced gerkins

Diced apple and 1/3 red onion, soaked 10 minutes in the red wine vinegar after the beets

Mix

 

Squeeze of Lemon juice

Olive oil

1 tbls mayonnaise

Mix

 

Then blend in

Cup (mild) sour crème (would use crème fraiche if I could get it)

 
Add dressing to bowl and refridg.

********
Still time to make it for your chrismas dinner (I'm having ours christmas eve).  BTW its pretty much kosher too if you get the right ingredients...

not at hand - it ends up being the purple colour of the beetroot.  Every swedish family will eat a variant of this with the christmas ham.

So easy in a crock pot.  I always have to remind myself to go easy on the liquid, though.

toffee.  That sounds like a yummy variation.  Must try with my sprog. Smiley

Have you tried using waxed paper to line the pan?  It's much easier to clean up that way. Smiley
