Why I Love This Recipe

Inspired by the Salmon Salad at Coastal Flats.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 6 OZ. Bag of Baby Spinach/Lettuce Mix
1 C Extra Fine French Green Beans
1 C Onions (Sliced Lengthwise)
2-3 Small Red-skinned Potatoes
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
2-4 Tbsp Light Balsamic Dressing

goat cheese or gorgonzola cheese (Optional)


In two saucepans, bring 2 cups of water to a boil (in each).

In saucepan 1, add green beans and a pinch of salt.

Lower to medium heat and cook approximately 8 minutes or until green beans are cooked but are still slightly crunchy.

Once cooked, immediately place the green beans in ice bath.

[Ice bath: a bowl of cold water combined with ice cubes]

Remove from water after a few minutes.

In saucepan 2, add red-skinned potatoes.

Lower to medium heat and cook 20 minutes.

Once cooked, immediately place the potatoes in ice bath.

Remove from water after a 5-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, place sliced onions and olive oil in small pan under medium to low heat.

Allow the onions to caramelize (approx. 20 minutes), stirring occasionally.

Combine the spinach/lettuce (washed and dried) with the green beans, potatoes, and dressing. Sprinkle with caramelized onions.

Optional: Top with goat cheese or gorgonzola cheese.
