    3. 3. Shuck corn, and scrape off kernels.
    4. 4. Wash, trim and seed the whole peppers, and chop finely. Finely chop whole onion.
    5. 5. In a serving bowl, combine the yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper.
    6. 6. Drain the green beans, reserving the cooking water, and run the beans under cold water.
    7. 7. Cook the corn 1 or 2 minutes in the water the beans were steamed over.
    8. 8. Cut the beans into 1-inch pieces, and add to the dressing with the peppers and onions. Drain the corn, and stir into dressing.
    9. 9. When the potatoes are cooked, drain, run under cold water and slice thinly; stir into the salad.
