Very flavorful and easy

My teenager raved even though had she seen the anchovies she probably would've turned up her nose.  I did used some mixed greens instead of arugula as my family doesn't care for arugula.  I did use a bit more lemon juice than the recipe called for.  The only thing missing was some homemade croutons.  Would make again - maybe just use some anchovy paste instead of buying an entire tin of anchovies that I will never use up.
