How to make it

  • Scrub the potatoes well, rinse thoroughly and pat dry.
  • Cut into 1-inch pieces.
  • Add to a medium-size pan of water.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook until potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife, yet still hold their shape, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Drain and cool, saving the water.
  • Place string beans in boiling potato water for 2 minutes.
  • Drain and plunge into a bowl of ice water. (This will let them retain their vivid green color.) Drain and pat dry before assembling salad.
  • To make the dressing, whisk all of the remaining ingredients except prosciutto in a small bowl and set aside.
  • To prepare the salad, place cooled potatoes, string beans and prosciutto strips in a large bowl.
  • Pour dressing over salad, and gently toss until well-coated.
  • Garnish with additional herbs, if desired.
  • Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled.

    I actually have everything on hand to make this including fresh green beans I need to use. Never had beans in potato salad and I know that has to be good.
