How to Make Potato and Green Bean Warm Salad

  1. Fill a medium cooking pot halfway with water and salt it. Bring to a boil over high heat and add the potatoes.
  2. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook for 10 – 20 minutes, or until the cubed potatoes are fork-tender.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over low heat and add the green beans. Season with thyme powder, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir for 1 minute.
  4. Add the butter and stir until it melts. Remove from heat.
  5. Make the dressing:

    Add the ingredients for dressing to a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Blend until smooth using a hand blender.

  6. Assemble the salad:

    Toss the cooked potatoes, cooked green bean, and dressing to a bowl. Mix until even.

  7. Optionally, serve the salad garnished with roasted pine nuts.
