Fishy-Sounding Beef


Some foods go together naturally. Peanut butter and jelly. Cake and ice cream. Bacon, lettuce and tomato. But roast beef and anchovies? I suspect that combination isn't on most people's lists.

Yet these two ingredients--when combined with hard-boiled eggs and crisp iceberg lettuce--make an unexpectedly good salad. You be the judge the next time you have leftover roast beef.
