Roasted Potato & Green Bean Salad Recipe

Roasted Potato & Green Bean Salad Recipe

I made this salad to take advantage of in-season fresh potatoes, onions, and green beans. It’s a perfect twist on the tangy German potato salad my mom used to make. —Blair Lonergan, Rochelle, VA

"Roasting potatoes takes a little longer than this recipe says. The roasted onions were great."

"This is a fabulous side dish and a nice change of pace! It made a ton, so I needed two sheet pans and it took ALOT longer to cook both in the oven. But the flavors were excellent. Next time, I will cut back on some of the potatoes so I can get it on one pan."

"This was a great side dish! I agree with the previous comment and will add more green beans next time but we really liked it. I am not at all a fan of traditional potato salad so this is a great option."

"Great change of pace from the traditional mayo-based potato salads. The only change I made was using a sweet onion instead of the red. Will definitely be making this again!"
