  • 2 lb cod fillet, cold boiled (see recipe)

  • 1 pt sour cream

  • 1 medium head lettuce, preferably Boston
  • 2 eggs, hard-cooked, sliced

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the horseradish, sour cream, salt, pepper, onions, vinegar, and 2 tablespoons of the chopped dill.

  3. Break the fish into 2 inches chunks and carefully fold it into the sour-cream dressing with a rubber spatula.

  4. Marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator, then arrange the fish, sauce and all, on a bed of dried, chilled lettuce leaves.

  5. Garnish with the sliced eggs and tomato wedges. Before serving, strew the remaining tablespoon of chopped dill over the salad.
