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
