My mom has been making this for years. Its a great salad served before a good Italian meal. Mom always serves it before her meat sauce. She makes a big platter and measures nothing. You should probably like anchovies or at least the flavor of them. I posted her recipe but I use whole anchovies packed in salt, cleaned, and a GOOD extra virgin olive oil in place of the canned. But her way is easier. I also use homemade roasted pepper. You can add anything else you wish.
