New Potato Salad

20 minutes
Serves: 6

This salad is best served warm, but it's also fine chilled. So you can make it in advance, and refrigerate, covered, until dinner.

  • 1 pound small, new (red) potatoes, quartered or halved
  • 8 ounces (1/2 lb) small green beans, stemmed
  • 2 tsp freshly-ground black pepper
  • 2 green onions (scallions), trimmed and minced
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 3 small, (ripe) tomatoes, cored
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley or basil (or 2 tsp dried)
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp chicken stock

1. In a large saucepan of boiling water, took the potatoes until just-tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Cook the green beans in a separate pan of boiling water, until just crisp-tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. While they cook, mince the green onions (scallions) finely.

2. Drain potatoes and beans and place them both in a large bowl. Add the pepper, minced green onion, and olive oil. Gently toss the vegetables (they absorb more scallion and olive-oil flavors if they are still hot). Set aside to cool.

3. Just before serving, add tomato pieces, chopped herbs, vinegar, chicken stock. Again gently toss before serving.
