Potato Vinaigrette Salad

This is my normal potato salad, also good on green salad. More reasonable in the calorie department, but to me the point of eating salad is not having to cook. I'd make this for a picnic or a party, and eat up any leftovers on a green salad.

2 lbs red or yukon gold potatoes
1/2 lb green beans, trimmed
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup vegetable oil
a spoonful of mustard

Boil the potatoes until you can stick them with a fork; but when you think they have about five minutes left, throw in the green beans. Drain and peel potatoes when still warm. Dice the potatoes, and cut the green beans into small pieces. Whisk together lemon juice, garlic, salt, oil, and mustard & toss potatoes and green beans in vinaigrette until coated.
