Warm Green Bean & Potato Salad

The combination of green beans and red potatoes, sometimes known as green beans Pierre, is one of my go-to side dishes. It's terrific with chicken.— Preci D'Silva, Dubai

    This was good, I used small creamer potatoes so the cooking time needed to be shortened. I used fresh herbs instead of the dried. The salad was a winner, even the teenagers ate it.

    Very tasty. I don't usually like warm salads, but this one was very nice. Made great leftovers, too. I don't like raw onions (especially in an otherwise warm salad), so I sauteed them in oil before adding.

    Overlooked my potatoes a tad, but still good! Next time I will add fresh garlic, too. Served this with TOH slow cooker pork chops. Both recipes complemented nicely.

    This is a favorite; I've made it several times already. I don't love raw onions, so I leave them out. Otherwise, it's perfect!
