Purple Potato and Green Bean Salad

SERVES: 4+

PREP TIME: 10 MINUTES

COOK TIME: 15 MINUTES

Ingredients:

SALAD

1½  lbs purple potatoes, cut into bite sized pieces about 1”

8 oz French or green beans, steamed or blanched and cut into 1 “ pieces

2 eggs, hard boiled and diced

DRESSING

¼ cup olive oil

1 TBS lemon juice

zest of 1 lemon

2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon fresh chives, chopped

1 TBS fresh dill, chopped (optional)

1 clove garlic, minced

1 teaspoon sea salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

Instructions:

Peel the sweet potatoes and place in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut into bite size pieces.

Meanwhile, place the eggs in a pot just covered in lightly salted water. Bring to a boil, then turn off heat and cover. Leave the eggs covered for 6 minutes. Drain and place in an ice bath to stop the cooking. Alternatively, you can use an egg cooker. Peel eggs when they are cool to the touch. Mince the eggs.

Place the beans in a shallow pan covered with water. Bring to a boil, then turn heat to low. Cook the beans on low heat for about 2-4 minutes, then place the cooked beans in an ice bath to prevent them turning brown. Cut the beans into 1 “ pieces.

While you wait, place all the dressing ingredients into a jar and shake to combine. 

In a large bowl, arrange the potatoes, beans, and eggs, and gently toss with the dressing. Taste, and add extra salt and pepper if desired. Serve immediately, or cover and chill until ready to serve. Enjoy!
