Roman Garlic Anchovy Salad Dressing

Yes, its time for the annual roll out of Peters favorite salad dressing. Intended to accompany Puntarelle (Catalan Chicory) or other fresh, bitter greens of choice, this dressing applies to any salad in which you might wish to find anchovies. You might even consider using it as the dipping sauce for artichoke leaves.

3 whole salt packed anchovies, or 3 tbs. anchovy fillets (Salt packed anchovies require more work but taste best. At all costs avoid anchovy paste.)
cup plus 2 tsp. red wine vinegar
2-3 garlic cloves, peeled
cup extra virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
Sea Salt (if necessary)
Chicory or salad green of choice

Marinate the whole salt packed anchovies in cup red wine vinegar for 6 hours. Drain, rinse and de-bone. Or, marinate the anchovy fillets in cup red wine vinegar for 1-2 hours. Drain and anchovies and pat dry with paper towels.
