Anchovy Potato Salad Makes a Nice Change

Traditionally, potato salad is made with mayonnaise, although the German style potato salad is made with oil and vinegar instead. There are lots of different ways to add flavor to potato salad recipes; for example, you can add curry powder or cumin to spice it up or fresh herbs to add an aromatic touch.

You can also add texture; perhaps you fancy adding some crunch with bacon bits or chopped onion, or maybe you want to add some creaminess with grated cheese. Potato salad is a personal thing and everyone has their own favorite way of making it.

How to Make Anchovy Potato Salad

If you want to add a delicious fresh flavor to your next potato salad recipe, why not switch your usual mayonnaise or oil and vinegar for anchovies? The kind you get in oil in a can are fine. Season the cooked potatoes with salt and pepper and then whisk some anchovy filets with oil, vinegar and whatever else you like and pour this over the potatoes.

If you do like the creaminess that mayonnaise gives, you could mash some anchovies into mayonnaise and use that as a dressing for your anchovy potato salad instead. Anchovy potato salad makes a great side dish for grilled chicken or prawns. You can also serve it on a bed of salad leaves.

More Anchovy Ideas

Salty anchovies contrast nicely with neutral-tasting potatoes, which are why making an anchovy potato salad is such a good idea, but they are also lovely with eggs. What about combining potatoes, eggs, green beans, and anchovies, to make a refreshing French lunchtime salad? Boil the eggs, potatoes, and beans first, and combine them warm or let them cool first. Serve on a bed of salad leaves, adding vinaigrette. Tomatoes and anchovies are good together as well, so you might like to toss some chopped tomatoes with chopped anchovies, adding basil, balsamic vinegar and minced garlic too if you want.

Caesar salad also features anchovies sometimes, although the original recipe for Caesar salad did not include them. Finally, how does celery and anchovy salad sound to you? Combining crunchy chopped celery stalks with salty, fishy anchovies gives a nice contrast. Add garlic, parsley, lemon juice, and extra-virgin olive oil to finish it off and serve this as a snack, an appetizer or on a bed of salad leaves, perhaps with some homemade potato salad too. This is crunchy and really tasty.
