REPEAT... and for good reason
I love it when a simple salad is substantial enough to be the entrée; a meal with the addition of some really good bread, a bowl of olives, and a glass of wine. And that's how I would classify this salad. I make it often during the summer months when I have haricot verts from my garden. I jumped the gun a bit this time, purchasing the green beans since mine are not ready yet.
Roasted Green Bean - Potato Salad with Sopressatta and Mozzarella
Food & Wine Magazine
• 2 pounds small new potatoes
• 1 pound green beans
• 7 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
• 3/4 teaspoon salt
• 2 teaspoons fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried
• 1/4 pound Sopressatta salami, diced
• 1/2 pound fresh salted mozzarella, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
• 1/2 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
• 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
• 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1. Heat the oven to 450˚F. On a baking sheet, toss the potatoes and green beans with 3 1/2 tablespoons of the oil, 1/2 teaspoons of the salt, and dried thyme, if using. Roast in the center of the oven for 20 minutes. Turn the potatoes and beans with a spatula, and sprinkle with fresh thyme, if using. Roast until the vegetables are golden and tender, about 10 minutes longer. Transfer vegetables to a bowl.
2. Add the remaining 4 tablespoons oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, the Sopressata, fresh mozzarella, parsley, and pepper to the bowl and toss. Add the lemon juice and toss again. Let stand for 5 minutes to absorb the dressing before serving.

Eileen, glad this is a repeat, as I missed it the first time. This looks like a real keeper in the recipe file box. My green beans are four inches high, but I'm a patient man.

Used the last of our garden green beans in this delicious salad. Loved what the lemon did to the vegetables. I'm not fond of salami so didn't put it in.
