Greek-Style Green Bean & Potato Salad (Vegan Recipe for Lent)

Print this recipe here:

1 and 1/2 – 2 pounds red, gold, or russet potatoes
1 and 1/2 pounds green beans, ends trimmed
8-10 Kalamata Olives, pitted and halved
1 teaspoon dried dill
salt, to taste
The Dressing:

1/4 cup olive oil
1//8 cup red wine vinegar
1/8 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon mustard
1 garlic clove, grated
Peel the potatoes and place them in a medium saucepan. Cover them with cold water and season with 1 and 1/2 teaspoons salt. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to medium. Cook the potatoes until they are fork tender, Larger potatoes will take longer to cook than smaller ones.
Lift the potatoes out of the water and set them aside to cool cool until they can be handled.
Add the string beans to the same pot and boil them for 7-8 minutes. Drain the potatoes and add them to a large bowl that has been filled with ice water. This will cool them quickly and hel them stay bright green and vibrant.
Combine the dressing ingredients in a bowl and whisk the together. (I usually double the amount of dressing).
Slice the potatoes into rounds or cubes and place them in a large bowl.
Pat the green beans dry and cut them in half and add them to the bowl with the potatoes.
Pour the dressing on top of the green beans and the potatoes.
Add the olives and dill, and toss.
Serve the salad slightly warm.
Leftovers will keep fresh in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
