Tender, first-of-the-season new potatoes are always such a treat. I adapted this recipe from one given to me by a chef with whom I worked in Paris. He hailed from the Normandy coast of France and was descended from a long line of fishermen/farmers. I think you'll love the textures and colors of this vibrant, seasonal, celebration salad.



Preheat oven to 400┬░ F.

Cut the potatoes in half or quarters (depending on the size) and transfer to a mixing bowl. Toss with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread out on a baking sheet in a single layer and roast for 20 minutes or until tender. Let cool. (You may do this step a day ahead.)

Cook the green beans in boiling, salted water until just tender but still green, about 4 minutes. Refresh in ice water and drain. Remove the stems from the green beans and cut them into 2-inch pieces. (Cutting them on an angle gives them a pretty look.)

In a large bowl, gently combine the potatoes, green beans, walnuts, red onion and smoked salmon. Toss with the aioli.
