YEILD: 4 servings
2 Tbsps. lemon juice
2 Tbsps. extra-virgin olive oil
2 tsps. D ijon-style mustard
1 tsp. honey
1⁄4 cup green onion, diced
1 cloves garlic, pressed through garlic press
1⁄4 cup fresh dill weed, minced
1⁄4 cup cilantro, chopped
5 basil leaves, torn
1⁄4 cup crumbled goat feta cheese
1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 medium-size red garnet yams
1 medium red-skin new potato
1 2⁄3 Tbsps. extra-virgin olive oil
1 lb. fresh green beans
1 cup red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
1⁄2 cup red onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, pressed through garlic press
Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare dressing by combining all dressing ingredients; set aside.
Coat a 14 x 9 x 2 1⁄2 -inch baking dish with 1 tsp. olive oil. Scrub the yams and red potato. Cut into 1⁄4-inch slices. Place in baking dish and toss with 12⁄3 tablespoons of olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes.
Trim the ends of the green beans and cut in half on a diagonal. in a medium-size pot steam green beens for approximately 4 minutes, or until beans are bright green and crisp, yet tender. Remove from heat, drain, and transfer to a plate to prevent additional cooking, then add the red bell pepper and red onion.
Remove yams or sweet potatoes from the oven and add pressed garlic; toss with a spatula and bake for a couple of minutes longer or until the tines of a fork can penetrate the potatoes. Remove from oven. Add the green bean mixture and dressing to the yams or sweet potatoes and mix thoroughly. Serve immediately.
