POTATO AND GREEN BEAN SALAD WITH LEMON & EVOO VINAIGRETTE
One of my favorite Neapolitan side dishes. In the hot summer months, in Napoli, we had this as our meal, with a can of tuna or Simmenthal on top, or a nice buffalo mozzarella on the side. It's light and refreshing, and perfect for picnics or to take to the beach, because of the absence of mayo or dairy, and it tastes better at room temperature.
-2 LBS of waxy potatoes
-1 LBS green beans
-1 medium shallot
-1/2 cup of EVOO
-50 ml of lemon juice
- Salt and pepper to taste

Serve as a side dish, or add some high quality, canned tuna or a can of Simmenthal for a healthy, quick, balanced meal.
