From: EatingWell Magazine, June 2019

Using potatoes and green beans gives this gorgeous and healthy salad a salade niçoise feel, but you can use whatever suits your fancy. If you steam any of the vegetables, don't overcook them—if they're mushy they'll fall apart when you toss them with the dressing.
