A colorful salad full of robust flavor

If you haven't cooked with anchovies before, let this be your first time! I grew up eating dried anchovies in appetizers and side dishes and they don't taste fishy like most people think.
A colorful salad full of robust flavor

I love using anchovies in dressings because they bring out a wonderful flavor in fresh vegetables. Here's a basic salad that's incredibly refreshing and rustic with beautiful red radishes and bright green parsley.

A great alternative to traditional salads

I like to buy jarred anchovies packed in olive oil and incorporate some of the oil into the dressing for added flavor. Pair these peppery radishes with a hearty pasta dish and a glass of wine.
