Potatoes and Green Bean Salad
This is one of my favorite meals and I could eat all of it plus lick the bowl because the dressing is so good.
1 1/2 pounds trimmed green beans cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
15 red potatoes, not really big ones and not baby potatoes
1/2 thin chopped red onion
1/2 cup diced parsley
1/2 cup chopped yellow pepper
1/2 to 3/4 cup sliced hot banana peppers
8 hard boiled eggs
6 Tablespoons olive oil
The juice of 1/2 a big lemon
6 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 cloves of garlic
One teaspoon salt
One teaspoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
Put everything in a magic bullet till it is all mixed together. Set aside
Put enough water in a pot to cover the potatoes
Salt the water
Bring to a boil till the potatoes are fork tender
Take them out of the water
Use the same water to cook the beans
Only cook the beans for about 2 to 3 minutes till they are bright green
Drain the beans and run under cold water to stop cooking
Set aside to drain
Put some dressing in the bottom of a large bowl
Cut and dress the potatoes while they are still warm
Do not peel the potatoes just cut them into 1 1/2 inch pieces
Add more dressing and coat the potatoes well.
Add the green beans, onions, parsley and peppers and mix well.
Add the rest of the dressing and toss gently.
Garnish with the hard boiled eggs
This is so delicious and a fast meal.
Of corse a big chunk of crusty bread with butter would be great.
