“O Creator! Thou who givest life to all things and hast made men that they may live, and multiply. Multiply also the fruits of the earth, the potatoes and other food that thou hast made, that men may not suffer from hunger and misery.”
Seriously? Of all the veg to mention in prayer of thanksgiving, the potato? YES! So, let us celebrate the potato by NOT tossing her in mayo, shall we? This snappy dressing is absolutely perfect for a hot backyard bar-b-que. The thyme brings a nice sweetness to the zing of the fresh lemon. Just remember to give thanks for the potato and all the “other food” thou hast made.
1lb green beans, trimmed
3 1/2 lbs small potatoes, quatered
1 small red onion thinly sliced, about 3/4 cup
for the dressing
Whisk 1/4 cup Olive Oil with
2 TBS fresh lemon juice
2 TBS whole grain mustard
1 tsp dried thyme
Simmer the green beans in salted water until crisp and bright green; about 2-3 minutes. Drain and rinse under very cold water. Meanwhile, add potatoes to pot of salted water and simmer for 12 min or until tender.
Gently toss the potatoes with green beans, red onions and the dressing. Finish with a bit of kosher salt to taste.
