I'd like to give credit where credit is due. The original version of this recipe came from Bon Apetit in 1984, and quickly became one of my go-to recipes for a delicious and different potato salad. What will make this 5 stars is to revisit the original recipe, by using fresh Haricots Verts (French green beans). They have a lovely crisp-tender texture, and a wonderful flavor that is different from the standard green bean. Also, cut potatoes in quarters first, then steam them until tender, then cool. Add the Haricots Verts to a large pot of boiling salted water, and boil approx. 5 minutes, until just crisp-tender, drain, and add them to a bowl of ice water to cool and maintain crisp-tender texture. Cut beans in half. Combine beans, potatoes, onion, basil. Pour dressing over, then salt and pepper to taste. Can be prepared 4 hrs. ahead. Cover and store at room temperature.
