This is a take on a potato salad from the New Basics cookbook. I like to not use much mayonnaise and to really taste the potato. I may use less than the recipe below.
Zest of 1 lemon
1/3 cup mayo
6 medium new potatoes
1/4 lb green beans
Lettuce, baby spinach or mixed greens
Combine mayo and lemon zest. Let sit for at least a couple hours. Or better yet refrigerate over night.
Remove the ends of the green beans. Chop into 1 in. pieces.
Quarter or eighth the potatoes (after cleaning them). Boil them in salted water until just a bit before desired doneness. Add green beans for 1 minute. Strain in a colander. Let cool.
Combine potatoes and beans with dressing and toss. Serve over the mixed greens.
