Favorite Potato Salad

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Chef Kate

This is a salad, variations of which I make over and over. In the summer when there are wonderful tomatoes, it includes them. This time of year, it's greens and potatoes, still warm, mixed with garbanzos and anchovy and vinaigrette.

Made this as written except used half the red onion and garlic and no dijon mustard. Served it warm and it was a very different way of making potato salad for me. Loved the salty flavor the anchovies added. Felt it needed a little crunchiness, maybe some chopped celery? All in all, it was good. Thanks for posting.
