Servings: 10

Ingredients:
2/3 cup olive oil
¼ cup white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons minced shallots
4 anchovies, minced
2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil
2 teaspoons chopped fresh marjoram

8 ounces green beans, trimmed
8 ounces yellow wax beans, trimmed

2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, unpeeled, cut into ½-inch cubes
½ cup chopped red onion
½ cup green olives, pitted, halved
½ cup Niçois olives, pitted, halved
¼ cup drained capers

Directions:
Mix olive oil, white wine vinegar, minced shallots and minced anchovies in medium glass bowl. Whisk in 1 teaspoon each of parsley, basil, and marjoram. Season dressing with salt and pepper to taste.

Cook all beans in large saucepan of boiling salted water until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain. Rinse under cold water; pat dry. (Dressing and beans can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover separately and refrigerate. Let beans stand 2 hours at room temperature before continuing.)

Steam potatoes until just tender, about 12 minutes. Transfer to large bowl. Heat dressing in microwave until just warm, about 30 seconds. Pour half of warm dressing over potatoes and toss to coat. Mound warm potatoes in center of platter. Toss beans and remaining dressing in same bowl. Arrange beans around potatoes. Sprinkle with onion, olives, capers, and remaining herbs. (Or just toss all together.) Serve warm or at room temperature.
