  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Cook the beans for 4 mins, so they still have a slight crunch, then scoop out with a slotted spoon into a colander and cool quickly with cold water. Tip the potatoes into the pan, add the eggs and simmer everything for 8 mins. Lift out the eggs, then leave to cool while the potatoes cook for 2 more mins until tender. Drain the potatoes.

  2. For the dressing, mash the anchovies with the side of a knife, then mix with the vinegar and olive oil in a large bowl. Stir in the beans, potatoes, olives and tomatoes. Peel and halve the eggs. Put the leaves into a large serving bowl, add the potato mix and eggs, then serve.

Really tasty. The dressing tastes vile when tasted alone but when added to the salad it actually balances out great. I made my salad partly warm which was good and added lots of black pepper. I only gave 4 stars because it’s not the most memorable lunch I’ve had; that said I will eat it again. Its filling, it tastes good and it’s easy to make. So no complaints from me.

Made this for one. Very easy to scale down. Afraid of putting cold eggs into boiling water I started the egg in the pan of cold water and hard boiled it, adding and removing the beans and potatoes An excellent salad that will definitely feature again
