Warm Potato & Green Bean Salad

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

Don't you love a good potato salad? I sure do! I'm pretty sure everyone has their favorite recipe, as the 4th July holiday approaches and everyone loves a good cookout or picnic, I thought I would share a different version of the classic potato salad. I love combining potatoes and green beans with a touch of lime and lemon juice and cilantro for a little kick. Take a look:

Recipe by Sweet Caroline

5 large red potatoes, chopped
1 cup green beans, chopped
1 small yellow onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
Handful of chopped cilantro
Juice of 1/2 lime
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and black pepper

In a medium pot, combine the potatoes and enough salted cold water to cover. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer until tender. Drain well and reserve. Dry the pot completely, heat the olive oil over medium/high heat. Add the minced garlic and onions, sauté until onions are translucent. Add the greens and sauté until it gets a little tender but still with a snap to it. Add the potatoes, cilantro, lime and lemon juice. Season with salt and black pepper, combine well. Transfer to a serving dish. Serve and enjoy!

* Tip *: If you like you can add mayo and it would be delish too, but it's your call!
