POTATO SALAD WITH STRING BEANS (INSALATA DI PATATE E FAGIOLINI)

This Potato Salad with String Beans recipe is quick and easy.

Any kind of salad is a major part of an Italian meal.


Some salads are Italian meals.

My favorite and I’m sure a favorite of many is an antipasto salad and a loaf of bread. For something different and refreshing this salad with work just fine.

 

There are many different variations of this salad that you can make, but this one uses a nice olive oil and balsamic vinegar instead of the usual mayonnaise based salad.
