This healthy, hearty potato salad recipe was featured over at the Idaho Potato website. You can check out my featured recipes here. Also, be sure and browse their site for so many more tempting dishes from fellow foodies. I love using fingerlings in salad recipes or just roasting them with a little olive oil and coarse salt. They aren’t just cute, but full of delicious buttery flavor. I love the fun color pop they give to salads and side dishes.
Drizzle beans and chopped fingerlings with EVOO. Go ahead, don’t be shy, that heart-healthy oil is good for you.
Roast your beans until they are crisp-tender and potatoes are lightly golden, about 20 minutes.
Chop the shallots and garlic and cook in 1 tbsp EVOO over medium heat.
