Russian Herring Salad; aka Herring Under Fur Coat

Place potatoes, carrots and beets into a medium pot. Cover vegetables with water and bring to a boil; cook until vegetables are tender. In a smaller pot, hard-boil eggs in water until fully cooked. Allow vegetables and eggs to cool. Soak herring filets in milk, covered, in the refrigerator for up to two hours. Rinse and pat dry with paper towels. Cut herring filets into 1" pieces. Arrange herring pieces in a single layer in a large baking dish. Evenly place sliced red onion rings on top of the herring. Using a rubber spatula, spread mayonnaise evenly in a thin layer. Mince potatoes and spread for the next layer. Spread another thin layer of mayonnaise over potatoes. Mince carrot and spread over mayonnaise. Mince three of the eggs and spread for the next layer, and then add more mayonnaise. Mince cooked beats and add as the next layer; spread more mayonnaise on top of beets. Mince remaining egg and spread over mayonnaise as the top layer. Chill in the refrigerator for up to one hour before serving.
