Potato Salad with Bacon, Anchovies and Capers

By • July 16, 2012 • 2 Comments



Author Notes: I love this salad and it's great for potlucks and bbq's. I've made a vegetarian version for our friends, so I know it's great without bacon and anchovies, however I'm an anchovy addict and I highly recommend trying the salad with them, even if you're not a fan - they add a great depth of flavor. I also suggest making this salad the day before you eat it, it gives the flavors a good chance to relax and melt together.darksideofthespoon

Thank you! I don't like hard boiled eggs either, when I make this I always get dear husband to chop the eggs... they have to be extra small or I pick them out, hehe ;)
