Dine In: Primavera Potato Salad


Primavera Potato Salad

Primavera usually goes with pasta, so I was totally smitten when I saw this recipe for potato primavera. It’s not a pasta dish or a potato salad, but it’s a wonderful combination of both of them.

Friday nights in the spring and summer find me on the back patio, nine times out of 10. I love to grill a steak, pork loin or chicken, and this dish is a great side. I love how it gets a carbohydrate and veggies into one delicious dish.

You can make it before your steak grills and let it sit out, or prepare it in advance and bring it to room temperature. If you make it early, don’t add the vinaigrette until right before you serve it, as the potatoes will absorb most of the dressing.

Primavera Potato Salad

Ingredients:

Salad:
1 1/2 lb small new potatoes, unpeeled
5 oz green beans, sliced into 1-inch pieces (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup carrots, thinly sliced diagonally
2 cups baby spinach, lightly packed
1/2 cup radishes, thinly sliced
1/2 cup green onions, thinly sliced diagonally

Vinaigrette:
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
1 tsp coarse salt
1/8 tsp pepper

Directions:
Cook potatoes in large pot of boiling salted water for 10 minutes. Add green beans and carrots; cook 5 minutes or until potatoes are tender when pierced with fork. Drain; cool under cold running water.

Whisk all vinaigrette ingredients in small bowl until well-blended.

When potatoes are cool enough to handle, quarter larger ones and halve small ones. Place in large bowl, along with beans, carrots, spinach, radishes and green onions. Toss with enough vinaigrette to lightly coat. Serve at room temperature.
