Great Salad

There is no love sincerer than the love of food. -- George Bernard Shaw

Another one of my interests include cooking. I love finding new recipes and trying new things. I also make my own concoctions at times, but I don’t think that taste as good as what others tell me they do.

Over the weekend, we wanted a good salad. There is an Italian Restaurant in Northern Indiana that is known for their amazing salad. The actual recipe is a family secret, but I found this online. I made it this weekend and it is just as good as the one from the restaurant. I just had to share it with you!

p.s. don’t be afraid of the anchovies!
