  1. Place the onion in its skin on a baking tray and put in a hot (I'd say 400 degrees) oven for about 20-30 minutes until it becomes slightly caramlised and soft.
  2. Boil the potatoes and the green beans in salted water until tender, drain and leave to cool.
  3. Chop up the tomatoes and add to a large salad bowl.
  4. Then cube the potatoes and add to the tomatoes along with the green beans.
  5. Chop up your very soft onion and add the anchovy fillets, bashing down into small pieces.
  6. Add a good lashing of excellent olive oil and a dash of white wine vinegar. Salt and pepper to taste and serve warm or cool, either as an antipasti, as a side dish or as a main second.
