Classic Pickled Herring Sandwich on 'Kavring'

Very classic Swedish sandwich. Don't be afraid of the pickled herring. This is the all-time favourite on our guided trips. Folks that don't think they're gonna like neither herring nor roe love it!!! Prepare the creamy salad and hard boiled eggs before you set off in the morning.
