A Seasonal Guide to Healthy Eating
Commemorating 50 years of School Lunch
This salad is best served warm, but it's also fine chilled. So you can make it in advance, and refrigerate, covered, until dinner.
1. In a large saucepan of boiling water, took the potatoes until just-tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Cook the green beans in a separate pan of boiling water, until just crisp-tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. While they cook, mince the green onions (scallions) finely.
2. Drain potatoes and beans and place them both in a large bowl. Add the pepper, minced green onion, and olive oil. Gently toss the vegetables (they absorb more scallion and olive-oil flavors if they are still hot). Set aside to cool.
3. Just before serving, add tomato pieces, chopped herbs, vinegar, chicken stock. Again gently toss before serving.
