Create a dressing with the remaining garlic, a splash of oil (from the jar of artichokes) and the rest of the lemon juice.

Step 3

Assemble your hearty salad with the warm potato mixture in the centre and the remaining ingredients built up around the outside.

Step 4

Finally, drizzle your dressing over the salad. Serve with crusty bread.
