Method

  • Cook the potatoes in plenty of lightly salted, boiling water until almost tender, adding the beans and asparagus for the last few minutes. Drain well. 
  • Then gently toss the cooked vegies, tomatoes, capsicum, artichokes, eggs, olives and anchovies with olive oil, red wine vinegar and seasonings to taste. 
  • Serve the salad with a sprinkling of pesto on top and good crusty bread on the side.
