Julie's Green Bean Potato Salad

Friday, June 6, 2014

How would you like an easy recipe to make Green Bean Potato Salad for your next dinner or BBQ?  Well I have an easy recipe that tastes great and can be made fast.  I make this during the spring and summer months and my family loves this dish.


2 14.5 oz. cans string beans - drained
7 red potatoes - cut up small and microwaved
small amount of red onion - chopped
2 to 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Add cut up potatoes and put into a microwaveable bowl with one tablespoon of water.  Put the potatoes on potato setting in the microwave and cook until done.  Let potatoes cool.  Put in a large bowl 2 cans of drained string beans, potatoes, red onion, salt and pepper, vinegar, and olive oil.  Mix everything together.  Done.  


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

See you all here on Monday for my Makeup Monday Series.  In case you missed any post you can click HERE.
