Tangy Green Bean Salad

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Karen Elizabeth

A warm, deliciously tangy flavoured green bean salad. For a more substantial salad, boil about 1lb of scrubbed new potatoes until tender, cool, and then cut them into bite-sized chunks. Stir into the green beans, and then add the dressing. From The Inspired Vegetarian.

What makes this salad so wonderful is the crumbles, it is the breadcrumb mixture that makes this salad a step above the rest of the field. Thanks so much.
