Potato and Green Bean Salad Recipe

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Fresh new potatoes and green beans make this fabulous garden potato salad, and a simple oil and vinegar dressing makes it tasty and lively.


  • 1 pound small new potatoes
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
  • 1 cup thinly sliced sweet onion rings
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced into rings
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup minced parsley
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


Place the potatoes in a medium saucepan, cover with cold water, add a pinch of salt, cover pan, and bring to a boil. Continue boiling until the potatoes are about 2/3 done, about 14 minutes. Add the green beans and boil until both beans and potatoes are just cooked. Let cool until cool enough to handle.

Cut the potatoes into 1-inch cubes, leaving their skins on; place in a large bowl. Cut the green beans into 1-inch lengths and add to the potatoes. Add the onion rings, green pepper, celery, and parsley. In a small bowl, combine well the oil, vinegar, and oregano. Salt and pepper to taste. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and toss gently but well. Serve at room temperature.
