Picnic Potato Salad

Update your traditional potato salad recipe with this simple dish.


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Place potatoes on a baking sheet and toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Roast in the oven until fork tender, about 25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Sauté green beans and mushrooms until beginning to caramelize, about 7 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together mustard, vinegar, brown sugar, garlic powder and remaining ¼ cup olive oil. Add parsley flakes, and salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Remove potatoes from oven and transfer to a cutting board. Carefully slice hot potatoes into ½-inch disks, then immediately add to vinaigrette. Add green beans and mushrooms, tomatoes, green onion, and feta cheese and toss to combine ingredients. Serve warm or at room temperature.
