    • 1 lb small white potatoes

    • 1/2 lb French green beans
    • 3 Tbsp Champagne vinegar
    • 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard, gluten free if needed
    • 1/2 tsp black pepper
    • 6 Tbsp olive oil

    • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
    • 2 Tbsp pitted kalamata olives
    • 2 Tbsp chopped parsley
    • 2 Tbsp chopped basil
    • 2 Tbsp chopped thyme


    • In a large pot of boiling water add white and red potatoes and cook for 20 to 30 minutes, or until fork-tender but not mushy. Drain and cut into quarters. Place in a large bowl. Toss gently with the wine and set aside.

    • In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, mustard and black pepper. Add the olive oil and whisk to combine. Add the vinaigrette to the potatoes.
    • Add the green beans, capers, tomatoes, onion, olives and fresh herbs to the potatoes. Season with additional black pepper to taste. Toss.
