This recipe from Food & Wine's Justin Chapple makes the most of canned sardines. Chapple prepares a bright herb mayo to spread on rye crisps, then tops them with a cherry tomato salad and good-quality sardines. The juices from the tomatoes soften the rye crisps ever so slightly.

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise with the capers, chile and 2 tablespoons each 
of the parsley and chives. Season the herb mayonnaise with salt and pepper.

Step 2    

In another bowl, toss the tomatoes with the olive oil and the remaining 2 tablespoons each of parsley and chives. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 3    

Spread the herb mayonnaise on the rye crisps and top with the tomatoes and 
sardines. Serve right away.

Make Ahead

The herb mayonnaise can be refrigerated overnight.


If available, smoked sardines are delicious here, too.
