Pat herring fillets dry and cut into small pieces. Thinly slice onions and cucumbers. Peel potatoes and slice.
Arrange potatoes on a platter. Place herring pieces on top. Place one third of the onion rings and cucumber slices on top of herrings.
To make herb cream, combine yogurt and cream. Stir in horseradish, lemon juice and all the herbs; season with salt and pepper. Spoon over salad.
Refrigerate, covered, at least 2 hours. Let salad reach room temperature before serving. Garnish with remaining onion rings and sliced cucumbers.
Salty herring fillets become milder if soaked in buttermilk overnight. Smoked fish can also be used in this recipe.
