Warm bean and potato salad

The simplest of salads, this classic combination differs only in that each guest should remain free to drizzle as much or as little vinegar and oil as he or she pleases. Cooking all the ingredients in the same pot will save on washing up.

Bring the lot to the boil and simmer until the potatoes are tender. The beans and eggs will be ready at the same time. Drain and set aside. Peel the eggs and cut

In 5cm thick slices. Layer the drained beans, potatoes and eggs on one large or four smaller plates. Serve with pepper, vinegar, oil, bread and red wine. Serves 4.
