Similar to canned tuna, sardines from a tin are an incredibly versatile convenience item to keep in your cupboard, delivering ample protein and heart-healthy fats as well as singular flavor. In this simple salad, the sardines are broken into pieces and folded into a mixture of chopped tomatoes, onions, roasted peppers, and fresh chives. A drizzle of olive oil and splash or two of vinegar (your choice) is all that's needed for a "dressing."
- 2 cans sardines (in olive oil)
- 3 medium tomatoes
- 1 1/2 onions
- 1/2 jar roasted bell peppers (pickled)
- olive oil
- Drain the sardines. Cut in half lengthwise and remove the spine. Break into pieces and place in a bowl. Chop the tomato, onion, chives and peppers and add to the sardines. Mix well.
- Sprinkle generously with olive oil and vinegar just before serving.
