Green Bean and New Potato Salad

Yield 4 servings (serving size: about 1 1/4 cups)
To streamline the preparation of this salad, cook the potatoes and green beans in the same pot of simmering water. The beans take less time, so add them to the pot after the cooked potatoes are scooped out. You can combine the mayonnaise dressing and store it in the refrigerator overnight. Toss with the potatoes and remaining ingredients just before serving.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds small red potatoes
  • 2 cups (1-inch) cut green beans (about 3/4 pound)
  • 2/3 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
