Portuguese Sardine and Potato Salad with Arugula

Photo: Marcus Nilsson; Styling: Angharad Bailey

Fresh sardines are simply sublime here, and relatively inexpensive (we found them for $12 per pound). If they are too hard to come by, substitute 2 (4.25-ounce) cans of oil-packed sardine fillets.

Preparation
