Directions

  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Place potatoes in a large bowl.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; grease with cooking spray. Cook and stir the green beans and onion until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic; cook and stir until garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute more.
  3. Transfer the green bean mixture into the large bowl with the potatoes. Add the balsamic vinaigrette, roasted red peppers, and basil; toss lightly. Stir in the goat cheese.

Good dish and will make again. I used fresh red pepper and added in the skillet with the onions. I also used 1/8 cup dry basil and added that with the garlic. Thanks!

I wasn't going to make this(recipe group) because DH does not like hot potato salad. But, had to make and post a photo. I had beans already cooked from something else, so I added them to the potatoes with some of my roasted red peppers, made some balsamic vinaigrette, and put it all together for a sampling and forgot the cheese. I was going to sub cream cheese, but totally left it out. Good flavor, I don't like a lot of balsamic dressing, too vinegary for me, but the longer this sat (and cooled) the better it tasted. I think it might even be good as a cold salad. The potatoes need some salt in there somewhere, unless it is picking it up from the goat cheese. Anyway, sorry about the cheese and thanks Linda!

I used fresh green beans, because they are lush right now and parboiled. Not a fan of goat cheese, so I used mild feta and the dish was great! Unfortunately, my camera seems to "ona break", mine looked much like the orignal picture!
