New Potatoes and Green Beans

New potatoes and beans in a garlic and herb vinaigrette dressing. This classic side dish can be eaten hot or cold.

You’ll need;

  1. 750g/1lb10oz new potatoes
  2. 220g/8oz of green beans, ends trimmed
  3. One tablespoon of lemon juice
  4. Three tablespoons of oil
  5. Half a teaspoon of garlic powder
  6. Half a teaspoon of dried parsley


  • Bring a saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes and boil for 17 minutes.
  • While the potatoes are boiling, whisk together the lemon juice, garlic powder and parsley in a small dish. Slowly add in the oil, whisking constantly. Alternatively, add everything into a small jar, screw the lid on and shake well (ensure the lid is securely on, you want to eat the dressing, not wear it).
  • After 17 minutes has elapsed, add the beans into the potatoes. Boil for three minutes.
  • Once the beans are cooked, drain the saucepan. Pour over the dressing and mix with a wooden spoon to combine.

Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before serving if you want to eat it warm. Otherwise, refrigerate for an hour and serve chilled.
