Here's something I threw together for lunch today:

Green Bean & New Potato Salad
      serves 2-4 (depending on hunger level)
1 small clove garlic
1 tsp tarragon vinegar
1/4 c Hellman's low fat mayo (1g fat/Tbs)
1 lb new potatoes (or other potatoes)
1 lb fresh green beans
salt and pepper to taste

Mince garlic very finely and blend into mayo along with vinegar.  Set aside
to let flavors to blend.  Scrub potatoes well and cut into 1-1 1/2" pieces.
 Place in steamer basket and steam until just tender (10-15 min).  While the
potatoes steam, trim ends off green beans and snap them in half.  Rinse
potatoes under cold water and place in strainer to cool while you steam the
green beans just until crisp-tender (3-5 min).  Rinse beans under cold water
until cool and place in strainer to drain.  Toss potatoes and beans with mayo
mixture to coat and season with salt and pepper.  You can chill this or just
eat it at room temperature.  I imagine some red, yellow or green bell pepper
would also be good with this or maybe a little onion or celery.
