A terrific salsa verde makes this velvety potato salad extraordinary. Here the salsa is made with parsley and chives; try making it with other summer herbs, like tarragon or basil, as well.

  1. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1/4 cup minced chives
  3. 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
  4. 2 tablespoons finely chopped mint
  5. 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  6. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  7. 1 large garlic clove, minced
  8. Salt
  9. 1 1/4 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  10. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  11. 1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed
  12. Chive blossoms, for garnish (optional)
  1. In a medium bowl, combine the olive oil with the chives, parsley, mint, lemon zest, lemon juice and garlic and season with salt. Let the salsa verde stand at room temperature for 15 minutes to 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, cover the potatoes with cold water, add a large pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Cook the potatoes over moderately high heat until just tender, about 8 minutes; drain and return them to the saucepan. Add 1 tablespoon of the butter and toss to coat. Season with salt.
  3. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the beans and cook until crisp-tender, 4 minutes; drain. Return the beans to the pot and stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter. Season with salt.
  4. Add half of the salsa verde to the potatoes and half to the beans, stirring to coat. Transfer the beans to a serving bowl. Top with the potatoes, garnish with the chive blossoms and serve right away.
