      I absolutely love anchovies and I loved these! They are unlike anything I have ever had. Outstanding. I have an anchovy salad dressing Anchovy and Caper Salad Dressing that I enjoy and these would be delicious on top of an arugula or mixed baby greens salad with my dressing. Unfortunately, anchovies are not to everyones taste. Fortunately, I do not care. I loved this recipe.
