Ingredients

  • 500g medium new potato (Jersey royals if you can get them), thickly sliced
  • 200g green bean , trimmed

For the dressing

Method

  • STEP 1

    Boil potatoes in salted water for 8 mins until just tender, then drain and keep warm (they will absorb the dressing better than cold potatoes). Meanwhile, steam the beans in a steamer over the potatoes for 4 mins. Keep a close eye on them as you want them to be just tender rather than soft. Cool the beans under the cold tap to keep their colour.

  • STEP 2

    Mix the dressing ingredients in a bowl. Add the warm potatoes and beans, and toss really well to coat in the dressing. (Warm potatoes absorb the dressing better than cold ones.)
