Sicilian Potato and Green Bean Salad
Ingredients
1
lemon
1 1/2
pounds tiny red new potatoes, quartered
8
ounces fresh green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
1/3
cup olive oil
1
tablespoon capers, rinsed and drained
3
anchovies, mashed with a fork, or 1 to 2 teaspoons anchovy paste
2
cloves garlic, minced
1/4
teaspoon ground black pepper
2
hard-cooked eggs, each cut into 6 wedges
1
cup grape tomatoes, quartered, coarsely chopped roma tomatoes, or roasted red sweet pepper strips
1/3
cup green Italian olives, pitted and quartered, or pitted large ripe olives, quartered
1/4
cup packed fresh basil leaves, cut into very thin strips
 
Salt
 
Ground black pepper
Directions
  1. Finely shred peel from lemon; measure 2 teaspoons lemon peel. Juice lemon; measure 3 tablespoons juice. Set aside. In a 4-quart Dutch oven combine potatoes and enough salted water to cover. Bring to boiling over high heat; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 12 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender, adding green beans for the last 4 minutes of cooking. Drain. Let stand at room temperature about 1 hour or until cool.
  2. For the dressing, in a screw-top jar combine oil, the 2 teaspoons lemon peel, the 3 tablespoons lemon juice, the capers, anchovies, garlic, and the 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Cover and shake well.
  3. In a large bowl toss potatoes with half of the dressing. Add eggs, tomatoes, olives, basil, and the remaining dressing; toss gently to coat. Season to taste with salt and additional black pepper.
