Summer dinner parties should be fast and easy!
Boil potatoes until almost tender and add green and wax beans. Cook another minute to blanch the beans. In the meantime, throw a handful of mint, half handful of parsley, a bit of sliced ginger and garlic in a food processor with salt and olive oil. Drain the potatoes and beans, let cool and add the mint pesto, salt and pepper to taste. (Amended recipe from Vegetarian times)
The olives are a fabulous gin marinated recipe from 101 cookbooks, link below.
