Tasty alternative to mayo-based potato salads, especially for those who don't like mustard. I don't believe anyone except the preparer would know that it contains anchovies, although they actually do provide a nice flavor. We especially liked the scallions (as opposed to the ususal regular onions)- gives a nice crunch and color. Quick to put together, too. Thanks for posting!
