Vanita's Insalata Verde
15 mins (prep 15)
14 ingredients
4-6 servings
This salad is so refreshing and colorful! I found it in a booklet called "An Adventure in International Cooking" that my Mom helped compile for 4-H in Madison County (New York State) back in the early 1970s. The original recipe called for 2 oz. of anchovies, but since my family doesn't like their texture, I substituted anchovie paste so I didn't lose their great flavor! (Putting this in the Mid Atlantic region due to the wonderful Italian influence on the cooking of that part of the USA).
