Green Bean Potato Salad

Put a twist on traditional potato salad by adding green beans and a creamy, slightly tart dressing.



After a long winter, nothing is better than the first taste of spring.

Bibb lettuce loaded with fresh herbs, asparagus with a vinaigrette drizzle, the pop of an English pea — the flavors of spring are light and bright and, perhaps most of all, green.

In March, we love finding green vegetables, herbs and lettuce in our farm-to-doorstep bags, farmers’ markets and grocery stores.

Chefs will be upping the green quotient on their menus in weeks to come. And at home, we can do the same.

How about putting a twist on traditional potato salad by adding green beans? A creamy and slightly tart dressing, loaded with fresh herbs, is a nice touch.

 

Green Bean Potato Salad

1     pound small red potatoes

1     teaspoon salt

8     ounces green beans, trimmed

½    red onion, thinly sliced

¼    cup chopped fresh parsley

½    cup mayonnaise

1 ½ tablespoons white wine vinegar

3     chives, chopped

¼    cup fresh herbs (basil, tarragon, mint or your favorite)

Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste

 

In a large saucepan, cover potatoes with cold water. Add salt, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender but not mushy, about 15 minutes. Drain, let cool and slice into rounds, ¼- to ½-inch thick.

In a large saucepan, cook green beans in boiling water and cover until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Drain, then shock the green beans by placing in a bowl of ice water. Pat dry with paper towels.

Place potatoes, green beans, red onion and parsley in a serving bowl.

To make dressing, in a small bowl combine mayonnaise, white wine vinegar, chives, herbs, salt and pepper.

Toss dressing with potatoes and green beans. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. May be served cold or at room temperature.
