Green Beans with Potatoes

Green beans with potatoes


 in a mustard-shallot vinaigrette.

This travels well and is good at room temperature too. 

Easy and oh, so delicious...


All you'll need are some potatoes, fresh or frozen green beans 

and some mustard, shallots, vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, scallions and mixed herbs. 

While the potatoes and green beans are cooking make the vinaigrette.


In a small bowl mix the shallots, mustard, and vinegar.


Slowly add the olive while vigorously whisking. 


 In a large bowl, toss together the potatoes, green beans, and the fresh herbs. 


Much, much better than plain ol' potato salad or plain ol' green beans. 
Great at room temperature too. 

The recipe calls for fingerling potatoes but I used regular russets
