This anchovy and tomato salad recipe has very few ingredients but absolutely sings with flavor when it's made with cherry tomatoes picked at their ripest. For the prettiest salad, use a combination of orange, yellow and red tomatoes.

This is a recipe I make over & over every summer! I know the anchovies may sound a little strange but their salty briny flavor with the sweet tomatoes is delicious & all about the best of summer!

Anchovies...who knew? Made this for an anchovy lover. I was hesitant but was pleasantly surprised how good it tasted. Just be sure to use room temperature tomatoes. Pros: Easy

Fast, easy & bursting with tomato flavor! I have made this a dozen times since last summer. Don't let the anchovies put you off they add subtle background savoriness. Today I am adding some fresh grilled corn but I have also used black eyed peas, just double the dressing. I have taken this to parties and there is never any leftovers. Pros: Easy & tasty...cold or room temperature Cons: Never any left over
