Chef's Tip

If you’re looking for an easier way to peel the eggs, use a serrated knife to cut the cooked eggs in half (shell and all!) and scoop out each half with a spoon.

Make It Leaner

Save one of the eggs for breakfast the next morning and you will shave off 30 calories and 2 grams of fat per serving.

Ingredient IQ

If you’re tempted to peel the potatoes, remember what you’ll be taking away: along with flavor, many nutrients are contained in that thin outer layer. Potato skins hold more fiber and iron than the flesh does, not to mention protein, potassium, and magnesium. So consider putting down that peeler and scrubbing the spuds instead. You’ll save time, too.

Wash produce before use

1

Prep and cook the potatoes and green beans

  • Scrub or peel the potatoes; cut the potatoes crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Trim the stem ends from the green beans.
In a large sauce pot, add the potatoes and enough lightly salted water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, reduce to a vigorous simmer, and cook until tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the potatoes to a large bowl.
Return the water to a boil, add the beans, and cook until crisp-tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water. Transfer the beans to the bowl with the potatoes.
While the water heats and the potatoes and beans cook, prepare the eggs.

2

Cook the eggs

Bring a small sauce pot of water to a boil and fill a small bowl with ice water. Carefully lower the eggs into the boiling water and cook for exactly 6 minutes for soft-cooked (for firmer yolks, cook for 1 to 3 minutes longer). Transfer the eggs to the ice water to cool. Carefully peel the eggs.
While the water heats and the eggs cook, prepare the remaining ingredients.

3

Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the potatoes and green beans

  • Rinse the white beans.
  • Trim the root end from the lettuce; separate the leaves.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Cut the eggs in half lengthwise.
In a small bowl, stir together the white beans and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
To the bowl with the potatoes and green beans, add the sherry vinegar and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

4

Serve

Transfer as many lettuce leaves as you like to individual bowls. Place the potatoes and green beans, white beans, tomatoes, eggs, and olives in small piles on top of the lettuce. Drizzle with the red pepper vinaigrette and serve.
