These are a delight! The colors are bautiful and the flavor is so fresh. I used Sel du Jardinier (gardener salt) which is sea salt with bits of parsley, garlic tarragon and chervil. I also added some freshly cracked pepper. Many thanks, Kathy, for such a pretty and delicious dish.
This is great comfort food. I served it as a side with Grilled Ham Steak and cornbread. Simple and easy for a weeknight dinner.
Loved it! I microwaved the green beans (they were the fresh steam in the bag kind) and boiled the potatoes. Then mixed them together with the butter and added salt and pepper. Went well with the beef stroganoff I made for dinner, and I actually liked the beans and potatoes better than the stroganoff!
The sea salt made this recipe, really. It's also very easy, fast, and doesn't have many ingredients. My BF and I added hot sauce to kick up the flavor a bit and used less butter, or, rather, less margarine. We also substituted frozen beans for fresh (I didn't have time to devote to preparing fresh beans.) I've no doubt butter and fresh beans would have tasted better:D The white, red and green colors were very attractive. If there were microwave time directions for the potatoes I would have gone that route, but I boiled them instead and that only took 15 minutes. Thanks Kathy!
This is great. I added some chopped shallots and freshly ground pepper.
