Three Bean and Potato Salad at Maine Food & Lifestyle

Lately I'm getting a lot of green beans in my CSA bag. They've never been my favorite vegetable (too many soggy hot lunch beans have stood between me and recess), but I couldn't resist these yellow wax beans and royal burgundies at the farmers' market.

They're beautiful together, though the purple beans turn green when they're cooked. I paired them with some chickpeas, new potatoes, and a mustard vinaigrette for an easy picnic salad. Head to Maine Food & Lifestyle for the recipe.


  1. That's so pretty! I've never been a huge fan of fresh green bean either. But for a very different reason than you ... I actually like those soggy, hot green beans from a can. Yep. I do. Bad, I know.

  2. I second Bianca--it's so pretty! Yellow green beans!

  3. I hate green beans, but that actually looks good!

  4. Really love all the colors together... A salad like this might actually convince me to give green beans another chance!
