LOS ANGELES — A red, white and blue potato salad for the Fourth of July. This recipe is from the late Barbara Hansen, the longtime Los Angeles Times food and wine writer, food blogger and cookbook author who died at the age of 90 on January 28, 2023. “She created the Border Line food column at the Los Angeles Times beginning in 1974 … chronicling LA’s Mexican food scene, including the newspaper’s first recipe to be printed in Spanish. Barbara inspired the main protagonist Joan Bergstrom in Kim Fay’s 2022 novel Love & Saffron, a character who discovered herself in 1960s Los Angeles. Instead of the fried pita used in fattoush and the bulgur wheat basic to tabbouleh, it is based on potatoes,” wrote Barbara.
