One of my favorites.

Red potato & green bean salad with Feta (and mint)

Change out the dressing, herbs, potatoes, & cheese to your liking.

Green Beans with Pickled Onions

3 cups fresh green beans, strings removed, cut in 2 inch pieces

Bring 1/2 cup water to boil in a covered saucepan, add the beans, cover and return to boil. Once boiling again, reduce heat and simmer 10-12 minutes or until tender. Drain in a colander and cool under cold running water. This can be done 2 days ahead, but don't toss with the dressing until just before serving.

In a shallow bowl stir together:

1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 Tbs sugar
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp pepper

Stir until sugar and salt are dissolved. Add in 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced and broken up. Let stand 10 minutes. Drain, saving back 1 Tbs of the liquid.

Whisk 2 tsp olive oil into the reserved liquid. In a serving bowl, place the beans and the onions, drizzle with the dressing and toss. Serve cold.

Makes 4 servings.

Pickled green beans are SO darn good! use to garnish our Bloody Marys with them, instead of the traditional celery, and people went coo coo for 'em.

I also like 'em blanched, cooled, and marinated with Olive oil, a little crushed Red Pepper, thin Frenched Red Onion, Roasted Red Peppers, a little Balsamic, Crispy Bacon or Panchetta and some crumbled Feta on top.

Heck, even cold Green Beans Almondine is nice, but with the addition of a little Gorgonzola or Saga Blue.

Mediterranean Green Bean & Potato Salad

A very common dish throughout the Mediterranean is green bean salad with potato ... the spices, herbs and varieties of the green beans and the potatoes, as well as the dressings vary from country to country, however, here is mine.

500 grams of baby new potatoes ( washed well and sliced in half )
250g Fresh French Green Beans ( slim variety string beans )
1/4 cup olive oil
2 dry red chili peppers broken and sprinkled on the potatoes and then tossed
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tblsp vinegar of choice ( I use Rasberry or Balsamic or Sherry or Red wine or white wine )
Herbs chopped finely ( choice is numerous )

1. boil potato halves in salted water 17 to 20 mins approx. until tender
2. boil salted water, and place string beans in a separate pot, ( not with potatoes ) and boil for 2 to 3 minutes until tender until the water is a vibrant green
3. strain the green beans
3. let the veggies cool at room temperature
4. prepare the dressing: mix the olive oil with the vinegar and the garlic and the chili pepper in a F.P. or with an Electric Mixer or by Hand.
5. When the veggies are cool, dress them with the vinaigrette and toss. Sprinkle the minced herbs and toss.

One can add cherry tomato, hard boiled egg or Proscuitto di Parma as garnish ...

Sempre.
Margi.

Some basil goes well with the green bean potato salad.
