Potato and Green Bean Salad

Today we have another great family recipe for you! Just look how delicious...


4 cups potatoes (I use a mix of the little red ones and the little yellow ones)
4 cups green beans
¼ cup olive oil
3 tablespoons pressed garlic
2 teaspoons salt

Cut up the potatoes into uniform, bite sized pieces, and boil until soft. Drain them. Cut the green beans into 1 inch pieces, and steam them until done.

Combine the pressed garlic and salt, and let the mixture sit for about 1/2 an hour. It's important to actually let them sit for that long. The salt chemically changes the garlic and makes it about half as spicy, so three tablespoons of garlic doesn't knock you over!

After that time, squish the garlic and salt up with the back of a spoon until pasty. Put the garlic/salt paste into the ¼ cup of olive oil and stir it up. Put the potatoes and green beans in a bowl, and toss with the olive oil mixture. Serve cold.
