Tomorrow I will get my second knee injection so today I decided to make some green beans and potato salad for a side with whatever hubby makes for us for dinner. Lol
This has long been a family favorite since way back when. My mom and grandmother as well as my mother- in- law made this delicious side a lot but mostly in the summer when green beans were plentiful. Pole beans were an Italian favorite or if you could find flat beans were especially a treat. Meaty and tender I remember growing flat beans in our garden when we were first married. Such a nice memory.
I don't know if any of you have ever had this or made it but it's very simple to make.
Fresh green beans and potato salad.
I lb. green beans cleaned
1 clove minced garlic
White wine vinegar to taste
Parsley pinch or so as desired
2 peeled and washed potatoes cut in cubes
