French Potato Salad

I love this potato salad! Its a twist on the classic version, but with the addition of blanched green beans, kalamata olives, red wine vinegar, and a few other simple ingredients. Great for a summer party or an evening at home!

Ingredients

French Potato Salad
  • 4 cups potatoes, roughly chopped
  • 4 cups green beans
  • 1/2 cup kalamata olives, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tbsp vegenaise
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper, freshly cracked


  • Boil

    In two separate pots, boil the potatoes and green beans until they are just cooked through. You want them to be just a tad crunchy. When done, rinse under cold water to cool.

    Chop & Mix

    Chop the olives and add to a large bowl. Mix in the potatoes, green beans, red wine vinegar, juiced lemon, vegenaise, dijon mustard, and freshly cracked pepper.

    Refrigerate about an hour to cool completely before serving.
