Just perfect for something out of the ordinary but still familiar. The capers replace the croutons for a more contemporary version. Serve as a side salad or make it more of a meal by topping with some cooked chicken strips & crusty bread and you've got yourself a divine meal!

Topped this with some rosemary, garlic, lemon grilled salmon and it was really good. I felt like it needed something crunchy to complement the other textures and it was slightly to lemony but the flavor was surprisingly good. I have to admit, I was skeptical of the anchovy paste, but my husband loved it and the six serving salad was gone in one meal for two!
