Spicy Sardine Salad

Spicy Sardine Sandwich by Carole's Chatter
I very rarely eat sardines but the better half will scoff them up any time they're on offer.  I made this Spicy Sardine Sandwich as the type of thing that both of us would enjoy – and it was even pretty healthy – the dressings were even on the side!

First I layered the platter with baby cos leaves.  This formed the canvas for the rest of the ingredients which were arranged over the top:

Strips of green and red capsicum (bell peppers)
A red chili
Slices of red onion
Some cornichons (mini gherkins)
A tin of sardines with hot peppers (put in oil and all)
Some glistening caviar globules – not real stuff but seaweed caviar – a beautiful orange colour
A few basil leaves
Salt and pepper

The dressings that I served on the side were all store bought – mayonnaise,  sweet chili sauce and vinaigrette.

It was a spicy and tasty salad.

  1. My hubby is the same about sardines. Will have to try this minus the bell peppers.

  2. You make the prettiest salads, Carole. My son loves sardines--especially the spicy ones. Thank you for sharing!
