Recipe: Chicken Salad with Anchovies

lemons | May 26, 2012 07:01 PM

As requested in an anchovy thread elsewhere, I offer this, which I am told began at Harry's Bar in Venice. Excellent for little party sandwiches or a cool summer lunch.

1 c. chopped chicken
4 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
1 tin anchovies, drained and finely chopped
1/2 small onion, grated
1/4 tsp. (or more) black pepper
1/4 c. mayonnaise

Mix together, chill and do what you will. I will add more onion if all I have are very sweet ones, and as is always true with such things, adjust the mayonnaise to make it the consistency you like. I often up the black pepper a little; its flavor is subtle but pushes the other things forward. Can't imagine you'd need more salt, but one never knows, do one?

Makes about 2 cups.
