Potato and Green Bean Salad

Author: Canadian Living

Coriander and lime give a classic summer salad a fresh new taste. You can also use parsley or basil instead of the coriander. If you like, add 1 cup (250 mL) cubed smoked cheese to the salad.

  • Portion size 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 10 (2-1/2 lb/125 kg) new potato scrubbed
  • 2 cups chopped trimmed green bean
  • 1/2 cup fresh coriander leaf
Coriander Dressing:
  • 3/4 cups light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander
  • 1/4 cup light sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Method

In large saucepan of boiling salted water, cover and cook potatoes just until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon; let cool. Peel, if desired; cut into bite-size cubes. Place in large bowl.

Meanwhile, in same saucepan, cook green beans until tender-crisp, about 4 minutes. Drain and chill in cold water; drain and pat dry. Add to potatoes.

Coriander Dressing: In small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, coriander, sour cream, lime juice, salt and pepper. Pour over potato mixture; gently toss to coat. Garnish with coriander leaves. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours.)
