Prepare Today Homemade-Italian New Potato Salad

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
This is the first year that I planted green beans in my garden and I have learned a great lesson. Always leave a week or two between planting seeds and don't plant them all at once :)  I have a ton of green beans!  So having learned this lesson I have had to find quite a few recipes for green beans.  This recipe I found many years ago in one of the recipe books you can buy in the checkout line at the grocery store.  It is actually the only recipe that has survived from that book.

Italian New Potato Salad
3/4lb green beans
10-12 (about 1 1/2lbs) new potatoes cut into fourths
1/4 C water
1/2 C Italian dressing or balsamic vinaigrette
1/4 C chopped red onion
1 can sliced ripe olives drained (2 1/4oz)

Cut beans in half and place with potatoes and water in 2-quart microwavable dish.  Cover and microwave 10-12 minutes, rotating every 4 minutes, until potatoes are tender.  Drain.  Toss the potatoes/green beans with the dressing, add onion and olives.  Cover and refrigerate 2 hours or until chilled.  Serves 8.
