New Potato and Green Bean Salad

This is a recipe I clipped out of Bon Appetite many years ago.  It is great for a day like today when it is hot and you are going to a picnic or mayo in this recipe.  It's tangy balsamic/olive oil dressing is a nice change from a mayo based potato salad.  The fresh basil adds a delightful twist.

1 1/2# small red potatoes
3/4# haricot verts or fresh green beans
1/4 red onion, diced
1/4 c. chopped basil

Put potatoes in water and bring to a boil.  Add green beans into the water.  Boil for 10-12 minutes.
Drain and cool.  Chop potatoes into quarters and beans in 1/2s. Combine green beans, potatoes, onions and basil in a bowl.  Add dressing:

1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
1/2 . olive oi
2 T. dijon mustard
dash Worcestershire sauce
2 T. lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
