Looking for a Thanksgiving side featuring green beans, but running low on oven space? This green bean potato salad is for you! I love that it’s a dish that you can be prepare and serve cold. Pre-blanch your green beans, pre-boil your potatoes, and toss this goodness together easy as one, two three. I like to save it for last when prepping a meal so it’s fresh and the herbs don’t wilt.
This recipe pairs boiled and blanched green beans and boiled and halved creamer potatoes, with watermelon radish, green peas, fresh mint, and a mustard citrus vinaigrette. Blanching green beans is one of my favorite ways to prepare them since it keeps the fabulous bright green color so vibrant. They also add a bit of crunch to this vegetable packed salad.
I like to use the tiny creamer potatoes, but you could substitute cubed of any potato really. Sweet potatoes would add some great flavor too! Either way, I know this simple and delicious green bean and potato salad will be a hit at your dinner table.
