I eat sardines for dinner once or twice/wk. Usually, I'll eat them on really good crackers w/a dollop of Dijon & 1 piece of Bread&Butter pickles. Occasionally, I'll put them in a shallow bowl & drizzle Amy's portabella salad dressing over them, including some sliced fresh uncooked veg. I like cucumber w/sardines, tomatoes are good, also, red onions are probably my favorite addition to sardines. Although I try not to purchase staples, basic foods @Whole Foods/Greenlife etc. I have found their sardines to be of v high quality (I buy the ones in olive oil + lemon). I sometimes substitute sardines in recipes calling for anchovies; but, purists would find this horrifying. I've had sardines several other ways (eg mashed + mayo etc like tuna fish salad or used for sandwich filling, but I'm not v fond of these preparations).
