Original recipe makes 1



* small red potatoes, scrubbed and cut into bite-sized pieces ** washed and finely chopped (optional) First, mix all the stuff together for the dressing in a small bowl or a measuring cup. Let that sit for at least a few minutes usually, if you make it first, then do the potatoes and tomatoes, thats plenty of time. Next, bring about 4-6 cups of water to a boil in a saucepan (more is better, but leave room for the potatoes), and add the scrubbed bite-sized potato pieces. Bring back to a boil, and boil for 4-5 minutes. Do not overcook! You dont want them to be hard, but you dont want them to be mush, either. Drain the potatoes, and rinse well under cold water (or cover with cold water, then drain and rinse). Drain the garbanzo beans and rinse them thoroughly under cold water. Cut the tomatoes into bite-sized pieces, but smaller than the potato pieces. Chop up the spinach (if youre using it). Mix everything together, including the dressing, in a bowl that is big enough to stir it without dumping bits over the side. Cover the bowl, and chill for at least 4 hours, tossing it once or twice to make sure the dressing continues to coat things. Adapted by Ron Lunde, from: Shea MacKenzies The Garden of Earthly Delights Cookbook My modifications to this recipe were to increase the garlic, cut back a lot on the oil, increase the potatoes, omit the sweet bell pepper, and add an extra plum tomato. This is my favorite potato salad. Recipe by: Shea MacKenzies The Garden of Earthly Delights Cookbook Posted to recipelu-digest by "Christopher E. Eaves" on Mar 12, 1998

I made this last week for my in-laws and am making it again this week for my parents. It gets better and better as each day passes, so it is great for a make in advance dish and most of the ingredients are in season at the local farms right now. I substituted different kinds of tomatoes based on what was fresh. This is a great, healthy dish!
