Potato green bean salad

posted in: Recipes | 0
  • 1 1/2 lbs. potatoes
  • 8 oz. green bean, snipped of ends and cut to 1 1/2″ lengths
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh chives, chopped
  • Chive flowers for garnish, optional

Simmer potatoes in salted water until cooked through. Remove the potatoes. Drain some of the water off then quickly simmer the green beans in the same water until barely tender, about 2-3 min. Immerse the beans in an ice bath until cool and drain. Cut the potatoes into chunks and add them to a bowl with the green beans. Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper. Toss with the potatoes and green beans. Add in the basil and chives and toss gently again. Let cool in the fridge and to let the flavors meld. Garish with chive flowers and serve.
