Lauren’s Kitchen: Potato, Green Bean and Asparagus Salad

April 13, 2015

Potato salad with green beans and asparagus

Ok I admit I have a salad thing going but seriously with these sultry spring days I don’t think anything sounds better in the evening than a bowlful of spring veggies tossed in the perfect vinaigrette. Enter Green Valley Kitchen’s Potato Salad with Grean Beans and Asparagus – a heavenly match. So heavenly that I’ve made it twice in the past week!

So here’s what goes into this delightful dish:

  • 1 pound of new potatoes – I used about 15 small new potatoes.
  • 1 pound of green beans
  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • 2 Tbs minced red onion
  • 2 Tbs minced parsley
  • 1 large handful of walnuts
  • 4 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 Tbs red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 large clove of garlic – put through a garlic press
  • 8 twists of black pepper

Further instructions for preparing can be found here on the Green Valley Kitchen Blog.

As you know I encourage my clients to eat a raw salad before dinner to help alkalize the body and improve digestion so what to do when the salad is the main dish and it is cooked? This calls for a perfect plate of seasonal fruit. Dinner done.
