Sausage, Potato and Green Bean Salad

This is a really simple and fresh summer salad, perfect to take to work in a lunchbox. It is just as good cold as hot. I used green beans from a friends allotment and potatoes from my garden.

Sausage, Potato and Green Bean Salad (from Thyme for Cooking)
(Serves 2)

4 sausages
250g new potatoes, cut in half if large
150g green beans, cut into 2in lengths
3 tbsp chopped chives
2 tbsp chopped basil
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp herbes de Provence
1 tbsp olive oil

For the vinaigrette
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp mayonnaise
3 tbsp Greek yogurt
2 tbsp white balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp salad olive oil

Pre-heat the oven to 200C.

Mix the herbes de Provence, paprika and oil, add the potatoes and stir well to coat. Put into the oven and cook for about 25 minutes until golden.

Put the sausages in the oven too and cook for 25-30 mins. When they are done slice into 1in pieces. 

Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the beans for 2-3 mins. Drain and run under the cold tap. Leave to drain well.

Combine all ingredient for vinaigrette and whisk, or shake if you’ve put them in a jam jar with a lid.

Put the sausages, potatoes, beans in a bowl and add the vinaigrette. Stir in the herbs and mix well until combined.
