Here’s how I do it.
- 1½ lbs small red potatoes
- 1 lb fresh green beans, ends removed
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

- ⅓ cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 4 cups water
- Boil water in a cooking pot.
- Put-in the potatoes and boil for 15 to 18 minutes.
- Remove the potatoes and set aside to cool down. Meanwhile, place the green beans in boiling water and cook for 4 to 5 minutes.
- Remove the green beans from the cooking pot and place in a bowl with cold water. This will retain the color and texture of the beans.
- In a large bowl, combine olive oil, Dijon mustard, dill, white wine vinegar, salt, and ground black pepper then mix well.
- Slice the boiled potatoes into quarters then toss them along with the green beans in the mixture.
- Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
