Isterband Salad
"The isterband sausage is a coarse, lightly smoked sausage from Småland in Sweden. It is made from pork, barley and potato and, eaten on its own, it can have quite an acidic taste. It is almost always served with pickled beetroot and dill potatoes. This salad uses those traditional components but distributes them in a different way throughout the dish." — Simon Bajada, author of The New Nordic: Recipes from a Scandinavian Kitchen
