"This is one of the masterpieces of French cuisine - simple, yet sophisticated and light, suitable for most occasions!"


  • eggs - 4
  • potatoes - 2, medium to large
  • green beans - 2.8 oz (80 g), fresh or frozen
  • light mayonnaise - 14 oz (400 g) (or 60/40 parts mayonnaise/yogurt)
  • lemons - 1, juice
  • green onions - 3/4 stalks
  • olive oil - 3 tbsp.
  • salt and pepper - to taste
  • black olives - a few for decoration

How to cook

Rinse the potatoes. Prepare the green beans by chopping off the ends of each pod and rinse these too. Place these together to boil in lightly salted water.

Boil the eggs separately and let everything cool at room temperature. Once the eggs, green beans and potatoes have cooled down place in the fridge for an hour to chill.

Chop up the the grean beans into small pieces and add some olive oil, salt and half of the lemon juice.

Grate the boiled potatoes and flavour them with the rest of the lemon juice, salt and pepper. Peel the eggs and grate those too.

In a large salad bowl layer the green beans, potatoes, mayonnaise, eggs on top each other and keep going till you use up all the ingredients, finishing with a layer of eggs.

Sprinkle your French salad with some finely chopped green onions and black olives. Serve chilled.
