German-Style Warm Potato Salad

German-Style Warm Potato Salad

Serves 2

30 minutes or fewer

This green bean-laced potato salad is hearty enough to serve as an entrée, but you could also pair it with grilled vegetarian sausages for a bigger meal. If you don't have white balsamic vinegar in your pantry, use any mild variety, such as white wine or rice vinegar.
  • 8 oz. baby red potatoes, cut into 1- x ½-inch pieces
  • 4 oz. green beans, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 3 Tbs. olive oil
  • 3 green onions, white and pale-green parts chopped (¼ cup)
  • 2 Tbs. white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh tarragon or dill
  • 4 cups loosely packed baby spinach leaves

1. Cook potatoes in pot of boiling salted water 8 minutes, or until tender. Add green beans during last minute of cooking.

2. Meanwhile, heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Add green onions. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until tender but not browned. Remove from heat, and stir in vinegar.

3. Drain potatoes and green beans. Toss with olive oil mixture, parsley, and tarragon. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Serve warm on bed of spinach.

It's not mind blowing, but it's solidly good, fast and easy. I sauteed some minced shallots and a tablespoon of butter to the pan to melt with onions (just sounded like a good idea with green beans and potatoes). Definitely toss everything around in pan (INCLUDING spinach- it will wilt slightly and be more flavorful), and I also ended up adding a bit more vinegar. Next time was gonna try whisking a tsp or so of dijon with the vinegar before adding- could be good- who knows!

I'm mostly vegetarian. I made this seder plate; CELERY, one hard-boiled egg,haroset,matzos,carrot. You can make haroset with grape juice and/or grated beets combined with apples and/or pears.

I really enjoyed this salad... the only change that I made was to add a bit more vinegar because I love the flavor! I will definitely make this again and next time I might try wilting the spinach as AJ suggested.

Good way of adding some Complex Carbs Potato, to a Salad. But I wud have very much STEAMED,(or GRILLED or BAKED) the Potatoes & Green Beans, INSTEAD of BOILING them in Water, thus NOT THROWING AWAY the VTAL ENZYMES and other Goddies in the Salted Water!

Sooo good. Make this one! It's wonderful warm but also quite tasty cold for a picnic the next day

I've made this a few times. My variation: I cut the oil to 2 Tbs, added chick peas too, and wilted the spinach a bit before tossing everything together instead of eating it raw. Yum!
