A delicious and simple potato salad full of French flavors from dill, Dijon, castelvetrano olives, and green beans. Featuring a vinaigrette—not mayo!—this salad is a healthy take on potato salad while still being bold in flavor.


  • 1 pound baby gold and red potatoes
  • 8 ounces green beans, halved and quartered
  • ½ cup castelvetrano olives, halved
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoons chopped chives
  • ½ cup classic vinaigrette
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


Add potatoes to a large sauté pan and cover with 2 inches of cold water. Place pan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil; season with 1 teaspoon salt, reduce heat to medium and simmer until potatoes are fork-tender, about 20 minutes. Drain potatoes and set aside to cool slightly; halve potatoes and transfer to a large bowl.

Prepare an ice water bath.

Bring 2 inches of water to a boil in now-empty sauté pan; season with salt then add green beans and cook until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Using a spider or slotted spoon, transfer green beans to ice water bath and cool completely.

Add green beans, olives, dill and chives to bowl with potatoes; drizzle with vinaigrette and toss to combine. Season salad with salt and pepper to taste.


This salad can be made up to 2 days ahead of time.

Make this vegan: use maple syrup in the vinaigrette instead of honey.
