Sardine and Scallion Salad

This sardine and scallion salad is inspired by a local business owner and chef in the town where I grew up: Sheboygan, Wisconsin. A woman named Toy was famous for her international grocery store, restaurant, and very popular cooking classes. She was generous with many of her recipes, but kept a few ‘up her sleeve’ that nobody could seem to wrangle from her.

This salad is one my mom recreated during Easter weekend, almost entirely from memory. It has some reminiscences of a Thai fish salad, as I attempted to reverse engineer the recipe through Google, and is a nice change of pace from your more traditional tuna or chicken salad. We hope you’ll enjoy!

Ingredients
1 C (about 3 tins) sardines, canned in olive oil, fork shredded
1 large clove garlic, pressed
Juice of 1 lime
1 tsp lime zest
2 bunches fresh scallions, whites finely chopped, greens sliced
salt and pepper to taste
hot sauce, optional
Endive leaves, for serving

Method

Prepare garlic and scallions.

Toss all ingredients into a bowl, adding extra olive oil if needed.

Serve over endive leaves, or atop greens, or on its own.
