Ingredients

Salad

  • 1 lb. small red potatoes, unpeeled, halved
  • 8 oz. fresh green beans, halved
  • 1 (2 1/4-oz.) can sliced ripe olives, drained

Dressing

  • 1/3 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh marjoram or 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic-pepper blend

Steps

  • 1
    In large saucepan, combine potatoes and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until tender.
  • 2
    Remove potatoes with slotted spoon; place in colander or large strainer to drain. Add green beans to water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook 4 to 6 minutes or until crisp-tender.
  • 3
    Drain beans in colander with potatoes. Rinse potatoes and beans with cold water to cool. Cut potatoes into slices.
  • 4
    In medium bowl, combine all dressing ingredients; mix well. Add potatoes, beans and olives; toss to coat. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate until serving time.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Any new potato (about 1 1/4 inches in diameter) can be used in place of the small red potatoes.
  • tip 2
    Regular balsamic vinegar can be used in place of the white balsamic vinegar; the dressing will have a darker color.
  • tip 3
    Spoon this flavorful potato salad in a decorative serving bowl and garnish with sprigs of fresh marjoram.
