Fresh, quick salad

Top Review by Zurie

Made for ZWT 7. Great, filling recipe! I made this for lunch, but it will also be a great side with grilled meats in summer. (Writing this in the Southern Hemisphere winter). Sorry, we do not get "swiss cheese" so I used a mild cheddar. Nicely contrasting flavours in this salad, and don't leave out the anchovies! Thanks!
