Recipe by Krissy
"This is a scrumptious combination of a favorite Southern restaurant's green bean side dish and potato salad. It's fabulous and your family will thank you. You can serve it right away, but it does well for a few hours in the fridge. Eat cold or at room temperature."

iced water, or as needed
small red potatoes
fresh green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces
white wine vinegar
salt and ground black pepper to taste
crumbled blue cheese
green onions, thinly sliced
Very good! I did cook my green beans longer than called for b/c we don't like when they are crunchy, and used a few more slices of bacon than called for. I only had red wine vinegar, so I went w/ that. This was wonderful both at room temp and cold. Loved the creaminess of the dressing. Make sure you season it w/ salt and pepper (especially salt b/c it needs it, IMO). I also added a some garlic powder. This was a hit tonight and I will def be making it again! Thanks for sharing. :)
I made this for my Son as he does not like sour cream in a potato salad, all the other family does, i do not like blue cheese, so the recipe had to be tested on him, he said it was wonderful as did his partner, they are both cheese adicts, they took the recipe home with them so they could make it and take it to another bbq the next day, where there were more cheese adicts, the verdict from that bbq was brilliant and why didn't they bring a bigger dish, as there was none left, much to my sons sorrow, he made more so they could take to work for their lunch the next week, so that is why i gave it 5 stars.
I thought, "Green beans in potato salad?", but it's really good. I used 3 1/2 oz of smoked blue cheese because that's what I had. I think the smoked cheese amplified the impact of the bacon. I also cooked the potatoes in a pressure cooker and the beans in the microwave to save prep time.
This recipe is fantastic. I doubled it with no problem, the tip about putting the potatoes on a kitchen towel really worked and completely removed the moisture from them. The dressing is easy to make and tastes fabulous. To be fair I did not add the olive oil, and it was still very good. My family loved how fresh it tasted, not heavy. I quartered some hard boiled eggs and decorated the top with them. Big hit in this household! Thank you for posting this recipe, we loved it.
