Potato, tomato and onion complement the fresh green beans in colorful Green Bean Salad. A subtle oil-and-vinegar dressing lends fresh herb flavor to the mix. The recipe comes from the kitchen of Sarah Maranto of Bakersfield, California.
"This combination of colorful vegetable is so good when baked in the oven," assures Margaret Allen of Abingdon, Virginia. "They make a lovely presentation when threaded on skewers before roasting, too," she notes.
Sometimes, simple is best. That's how I feel about this quick and refreshing summertime salad - a delightful dressing lets the garden-fresh vegetables star. It takes only a few minutes to arrange the slices attractively on a bed of lettuce.

I love to use parsley in many dishes, and it suits the fresh taste of small red potatoes well. Even though they're easy to prepare, they look fancy and go great with baked ham. —Eunice Stoen, Decorah, Iowa
