This Fermented Bean & Potato Salad made with Olive My Pickle's Spicy Fermented Green Beans is an innovative and healthful version of a classic side dish.

The beans are lacto-fermented in a real salt brine, which introduces beneficial probiotics to the mixture, creating a tasty and nutritious dish. 

With each bite of this salad, you can enjoy all the health benefits of fermented foods without sacrificing on flavor.



  1. Place potatoes in a medium pot and fill with cold water. Add salt. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 8 minutes (longer for bigger potatoes). Drain in colander and place in a medium bowl.

  2. Stir in Spicy Fermented Green Beans. Set aside.

  3. In a small bowl whisk together olive oil and brine. Add black pepper and red pepper flakes and combine.

  4. Pour dressing over potato and green bean mixture and toss to coat. Add a sprinkling of parsley to garnish.

Adding hard-boiled eggs to this side dish is a great way to up its protein content, turning it into a meal in itself.
