I'm sorry, I didn't like the dressing at all :( it didn't taste like other ceasar's :( No fault of the recipes though, just didn't agree with me :/

This is a fabulous potato salad - delicious and full of flavour. The anchovies are key to making it what it is!

I just don't tell fussy people about the anchovies and nobody has gone "yuck" and when I reveal the secret ingredient, disbelief because "I don't like anchovies"! Goes great with barbecues and will be serving it tonight with oven-fried chicken.

Enjoyed this with sausages & lamb chops cooked on the plancha. Good flavour - the anchovies added depth of flavour, without tasting 'fishy' - if you don't have any, a splash of Thai fish sauce would do the trick.

A bit of a strong taste. But it's not a bad taste.

Delicious and simple - I left out the anchovies as had fussy guest, but still great.

This is a really tasty potato salad. The parmesan, anchovies and garlic give it a good kick. It was easy-peasy to prepare. Worth trying!

I think this is my new favorite potato salad. Not only is it ridiculously easy to make, but it's *packed* with flavor! I tripled it for our July 4th celebration--with red, white and blue (purple) potatoes, and it was ready to go in no time. I added celery for crunch, and I'm opting to serve it cold. For you anchovy haters? PLEASE leave them in--they add incredible flavor--not fishy at all. And use the good parmesan that you grate yourself!

Thanks for yet another fabulous recipe-you guys never disappoint!

Great side dish that's very easy to make. For a more 'neutral' taste that would blend in with my other dishes I left out the anchovy fillets.
