Can I get a glory, glory Hallelujah!!! Please?

I FINALLY have the Tastemaker Challenge 2 recipe and video ready to share with y’all!  This video has been almost comical with the issues it’s had.  Lost camera, video software crashing, things deleting, hiccuping and flat out disappearing on me.

BUT, it’s ready!

This month’s Tastemaker 2K10 challenge was nutrition on a budget.  We were each given $10 and told to create a healthy, nutritious and delicious meal for under $10.  Another Challenge for the Challenge.. keep it as close to the potatoes natural healthy state as possible.

So… without further ado… I present my “TONGUEGASMIC”

Chilled Potato and Green Bean Salad


  • 1 bag Red Potatoes
  • 1 lb fresh green beans, washed and snapped into 1″ pieces
  • 3/4 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 C extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp minced shallot (mine was a healthy 1 Tbsp)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Mince the shallot and whisk together in a glass bowl: lemon juice, red wine vinegar, dijon mustard, salt and pepper, olive oil shallot.  Cover and refrigerate.

Wash and snap green beans into roughly 1″ pieces.

Wash the potatoes and quarter

Steam the green beans to snappy crisp tender, remove from steamer and run cold water over them to cease the cooking process.

Drizzle about 2 tsp of vinaigrette over the green beans and refrigerate.

Steam the potatoes until fork tender.  Remove and rinse with cool water to stop the cooking process.

Add the potatoes to the green beans.

When you’re ready to serve them, toss with the vinaigrette.  I had some vinaigrette left over.  I didn’t want it to be too saturated.

This recipe was served at our practice Thanksgiving meal and my entire family gave it huge thumbs up.  I will definitely make this again and I *might* have snacked on the leftovers for the next day. YUM.
