Whoever said potato salad needs to be cold? For this warm version, new potatoes are roasted right alongside green beans, then tossed in a tangy champagne vinegar and Gorgonzola dressing. If you like, you can toss in some baby arugula.

Great side dish I made this last night as a side to salmon and it was great. I roasted the green beans at the same time as the potatoes as the recipe calls for, and they came out pretty limp. I prefer my green beans with some crisp. I saw a comment that said they put the green beans in later and only roasted them for 10 minutes; I might try that next time. Or I may omit the green beans and just do the potatoes this way. The dressing was delicious! Pros: Easy, filling Cons: Green beans were very limp

Have subbed asparagus for the beans when the beans weren't looking their best. Delicious!

Very tasty dish! Served this dish with company and they loved it. It was very tasty and a different way to use the summer veggies. I don't cook a lot so getting the potatoes and greens cooked just right involved several checks but, now that I've cooked the dish once, it should be really easy. I substituted Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese for the blue cheese as I don't care for blue cheese. It was a great substitute. Pros: Great new way to use the summer veggies.

WOW! Delicious!! I made my own adjustments... I used Splenda instead of sugar.... And substituted the Gorgonzola for Parmesan as that is what I had on hand. Used cayenne pepper seasoning and it was fabulous! Everyone came back for seconds! Pros: So simple Cons: None

great combo I had to cook the full 35 minutes to get the vegetables browned. I substituted white wine vinegar and used everything else. It was really good! I served it with a roast and we ate them ALL. Pros: easy to make

Tasty using different cheese as well This dish was very tasty! I didn't have the Gorgonzola cheese or the scallions, so I just substituted freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. I used it to accompany the Pork Tenderloin "Rosa di Parma" I made (also on this site-yum). It was a match made in heaven. My kids loved it. My company loved it. My only caution is that you need to watch the green beans. The first time I made it, some of the beans burned. The second time, I added the green beans about 10 minutes before the potatoes were done. That worked out much better. Pros: Easy to prepare, Family friendly Cons: Green beans can burn

Super yummy side dish - easy & delicious! I made this tonight and was thrilled with the outcome. I adore roasted green beans and potatoes separately - together, with a tangy dressing and blue cheese - heaven! My guests all loved it, including one for whom blue cheese isn't a favorite. I'll definitely be making this one again and again! Pros: Easy, tangy Cons: Not for you if you don't like blue cheese
