Turtle and Green Bean and New Potato Salad

Well, no, of course I'm not going to put Turtle in the salad, but I drew a quick sketch of her sitting by Raf. Then I took the photo of her upside-down on the futon. You can see a little of her shaved belly. Salad below photo! Tammy asked me for it some time ago, and when I served it at church, my bp went up, so I waited until now. BTW, everyone loved this salad, and I made 1 1/2 the recipe. It was eaten right up...the Bishop liked it, too.
Green Bean and New Potato Salad

This may be prepared the night before and stored in the refrigerator. Makes 8 servings.

2
lb. new red potatoes, quartered
1 tsp. salt
2 qt. water
2 Tbsp. salt
2 lb. thin fresh green beans, trimmed
Rosemary Vinaigrette

1. Bring new potatoes, 1 tsp. sale, and water to cover to boil in a Dutch oven; cook 18-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain and let cool.
2. Bring 2 qt. water and 2 Tbsp. salt to boil in a Dutch oven; add beans. Cook 6 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Plunge beans into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain.
3. Combine green beans and potatoes in a large bowl. Pour Rosemary Vinaigrette over green bean mixture, tossing to coat. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

I just remembered - her name was Sharon Wyatt and her dad was pastor of the Nazarene church back in the late 60s, early 70s. I don't know what happened after that.
