Directions

Get together the ingredients we need.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the green beans until just become tender but still crisp, 2 to 3 minutes.

Transfer into ice water, drain well, cut into half crosswise if too long, set aside.

Add the potatoes in a dutch oven or saucepan, cover with cold and salted water.

Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are slightly tender, 4 to 6 minutes.

Drain well in a colander, place on a baking sheet or a large flat plate and allow to cool enough to handle, halve the potatoes.

Add the vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, honey and salt and pepper in a large bowl, whisk until well blended.

Add the vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, honey, salt and pepper in a large bowl, whisk until well blended.

Slowly whisk in the extra-virgin olive oil until well combined.

Preheat the grill to medium heat.

Toss the potatoes with enough olive oil to coat and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Grill until brown in spots, turning once or twice, 4 to 6 minutes.

Boil and grill the new potatoes.

Remove from the grill and toss with some of the vinaigrette.

Mix together the potatoes, green beans, feta cheese, olives and oregano in a bowl until well combined.

Add more vinaigrette and toss until well mixed, season with salt and black pepper if needed.

Sprinkle the parsley leaves over the salad. Serve at room temperature or chilled.

A simple and tasty grilled potato salad. We got some purple and green beans from our farm, but interesting thing was that after blanching the purple beans they turned into green beans again :) Green beans and grilled new potatoes were tossed with a light and refreshing vinaigrette, feta cheese and black olives, which really was a delicious combination together! Definitely will be one of favorite grilling recipes in this summer, and it should be great paring with any grilled meat!
