Potato And Anchovy Salad

I would love to win with the Hot Potato Blogger Challenge with this recipe for Potato And Anchovy Salad because I could really do with some good news!

The first time Cindy came to stay with us, she made her famous Italian-peasant anchovy and potato salad. This was something totally new to me, as I always make my potato salad with mayonnaise, pickled cucumbers and finely chopped chives. Dave and I fell in love with this salad and so for this competition I sent Cindy a message asking if I could make her potato and anchovy salad salad and blog it. She does not have the recipe up on her blog, and I went from taste memory in order to recreate the dish. I have made this potato salad often and it is always so popular. In fact, if you have friends who think their potato salad is the best, just take this dish along with you next time you visit, you will be sure to change their minds! This potato salad will stand up to any protein you put with it. It is robust and hearty and the perfect dish to serve at a BBQ.

  1. Hope you win the hot potato blogger challenge Tandy! Totally agree ~ life has been a bit of a bummer lately =( Good news is always welcome in times of trouble for sure. This potato salad is so creative! I’ll have to bring it to our 4th of July festivities.

  2. I will admit, I would’ve never paired potatoes with anchovies. Not in a million years. But there’s something about this dish that’s really intriguing. Not to mention your photo looks amazing Tandy.
