Potato Salad Nicoise!! Delicious!

Posted on Updated on

I made this salad recipe to serve with our home made ribs fresh out of my husband’s new smoker.  The ribs were excellent and this recipe was voted a clear winner.  So I thought I would share it.

Potato Salad Nicoise

3/4 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 2 inch pieces

3 pounds of new potatoes cut into bite size pieces if too large

1/2 small red onion diced small, rinsed and drained

1/4 cup of pitted Kalamata olives, rinsed, drained and chopped small

2 Tbsp drained and rinsed capers chopped small

6 hard-boiled eggs peeled and sliced

Dressing

2 garlic cloves minced

1/2 cup olive oil

juice of a lemon

3 Tbsp white wine vinegar

1 cup mayonnaise

1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper

dash of Worsteshire sauce

Mix all dressing ingredients well and set aside.  In a large pot, bring salted water to the boil, place green beans in the boiling water and cook for 5 minutes.  With a slotted spoon, remove the beans and place in a bowl of ice water.  Place potatoes in boiling water and cook for 15 minutes til tender when pierced with a knife.  Drain potatoes and place in a bowl.  Cover the hot potatoes with the dressing.  Add the olives, capers and onions.  Allow to cool to room temperature.  Drain the green beans and add them to the potatoes and dressing and mix well.  Top with the sliced eggs.  Serve.  If you are not serving the salad right away, place in the fridge to keep cool.

I hope you enjoy this salad.  Cheers, Michele
