Green Bean and Potato Salad

Green Bean and Potato Salad


1 1/2 pounds red potatoes
3/4 pound fresh green beans, trimmed and snapped
1 small red onion, chopped
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved and roasted
salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp minced fresh rosemary
1 clove garlic, minced
1 dash Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Quarter the potatoes and place in a pot of boiling, salted water.   Cook until fork tender.  Steam the green beans.  Transfer to a large bowl, and toss with the red onion and tomatoes. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, mustard, lemon juice, garlic, rosemary, Worcestershire sauce and olive oil. Pour over the salad, and stir to coat. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper if needed.  Marinate several hours or preferably over night.
