Sicilian Potato Salad
⅓ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp lemon vest
¼ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp of oregano
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp Kosher Salt
½ Red Onion thinly sliced
1 lb Baby Yukon Gold Potatoes
I cup Cherry Tomatoes
½ lb green beans
½ cup black olives sliced
½ cup pitted green olives sliced
In a large shallow serving bowl, whisk together the olive oil, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, oregano, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Set aside.
Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Season generously with kosher salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Continue to boil the potatoes until the tip of a knife inserted in the center goes in easily, about 12 minutes. Add the green beans to the water and cook another 5 minutes.
Drain the potatoes and beans and let cool.
Cut the potatoes in half. Add the halved potatoes to the dressing, beans, red onion, tomatoes, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, green olives, and black olives. Toss well to coat. Serve chilled
