Roasted Fingerling Potatoes & Green Beans in Tarragon Sauce

"You can make the dressing while the potatoes cook or it can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to 2 days. Let the chilled dressing stand 30 minutes before using. If you cannot find fingerling potatoes, you can use 1 1/2 lb. small red potatoes, halved, with a bake time of 35 minutes or 1 1/2 lb. russet potatoes, quartered, with a bake time of 40 minutes. Recipe is from Southern Living."

  1. Really good!!! I mixed the potatoes and green beans together and everyone thought they were great!
  2. I loved the concept...except my tarragon sauce didn't turn out quite as expected...I did double the recipe though so maybe something got mixed up in the conversion. All in all, a really nice dish and I will try it again!
  3. *Made for Australia/NZ Swap #30* A very simple, easily prepared dish. Followed recipe as posted. Had to use baby red potatoes, which were done in listed 32 minutes. Haricot verts had been frozen for a while, but roasted well in 12 minutes. The prize of the dish was the tarragon sauce, easily prepared, and tastily spread over the dish. thanks for posting, Lainey.
