misteraitch's pseudo-Mediterranean salad

Our pseudo-Mediterranean salad of the moment...

Boil: 400g small new potatoes
Hard-boil 3 eggs
Boil/steam 100g-ish green beans

Halve the potatoes, slice the eggs & put in a bowl with the beans and:

1 red onion, finely sliced.
A half dozen ripe cherry tomatoes, halved
A good handful of pitted black olives
50g-ish feta, cubed.

Then, for the dressing, mix:

1 small clove of fresh garlic, chopped/crushed
2 tsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp lime juice
5 tbsp x. virgin olive oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Some basil leaves, chopped
1 smidgeon honey
Salt, pepper

Combine Let it stand for a half hour or so & voilà, Bob’s your uncle. Some avocado goes nicely in there too, otherwise customise as predilection dictates.
