Mediterranean Potato Salad
Mediterranean Potato Salad


  • 1 cup minced Kalamata olive
  • 4 pounds, small new or fingerlings potatoes
  • 3 large red bell peppers (roasted with the core removed)
  • Salted water for cooking the potatoes (use 1 ½ teaspoons for every quart of water)
  • ¾ cup of minced onions (red onions)
  • 1 pound of fresh, trimmed and cut (1 inch pieces) of green beans
  • 1 handful (large) of fresh parsley leaves (Italian parsley works well)
  • 1 handful (large) of baby arugula leaves (fresh)
  • For the dressing, you will need:
  • ½ a teaspoon of salt
  • 1/3 cup of red wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoonfuls of grain mustard
  • 1 teaspoon of dried herbs de Provence (dried tarragon)


Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water (the water should be an inch above the potatoes).

Add salt (one and a half teaspoons for every quart of water).
Simmer on high heat then reduce the heat to medium-low and continue simmering.

Cook for 10-15 minutes or until the potatoes are easy to pierce then drain the water and place the potatoes on a pan to cool.

Boil another pot of water, this should be two quarts of water with a tablespoon of salt sea or Epsom salt

Add the green beans and blanch for five minutes (this may be more depending on the age and toughness of the beans; you can continue cooking for as long as it takes for the beans to become tender. Once you are sure that they are cooked, drain and place in an ice cold water to stop them from cooking further.

Make the vinaigrette while the potatoes and green beans are cooking; in a bowl, whisk the vinegar, tarragon, salt, olive oil and the mustard.

If you are satisfied that the potatoes have cooked, cut them into bit sized pieces (¾ -1 inch) and place them in a large bowl.

Add the green beans, red onion, olives and strips of roasted peppers then let this marinate until it is ready to serve. 

Toss with vinaigrette. When you are ready to serve, toss with the parsley and arugula.
