Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together all the vinaigrette ingredients except oil; slowly whisk in oil.
  2. Place onions in another small bowl; cover with cold water. Let stand while preparing salad; drain.
  3. Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch-thick slices; halve slices. Cook in large pot of boiling water 10 to 12 minutes or until tender. With slotted spoon, remove potatoes from water, draining well; reserve cooking liquid in pot. Place potatoes in large bowl. Add half of the vinaigrette; toss gently to combine.
  4. Add green beans to same pot of boiling water; cook 4 to 5 minutes until just tender. Drain; rinse under cold running water. Pat dry; add to potatoes. Stir in remaining vinaigrette. Add olives, cheese, and onions; stir gently to combine.
  5. Serve at room temperature.
