Super Sardines

Related To:

Some of us in the test kitchen think sardines get a bad rep: They’re so often overlooked and sometimes even unfairly vilified. So we decided to hide them in Food Network Magazine's Sardine Salad Sandwich (pictured above) on page 66 of the April issue, adding heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins D and B12, iron and potassium to a lunchtime staple. (Bonus: Sardines are also very low in mercury.) This sandwich is so quick and delicious — we even fooled our own tasters into thinking it was tuna.

We also love adding sardines to our delicious Classic Nicoise Salad on page 150, or throwing chopped sardines into tomato sauce while it simmers and serving it over pasta.

Tell us: What’s your favorite way to eat sardines?
