Ingredients

1 small red onion, halved

3 ounces soft goat cheese

1/4 cup buttermilk

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon horseradish, drained

2 teaspoons whole-grain mustard

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1 pound small red-skinned potatoes, sliced

4 large eggs

8 ounces green beans, trimmed

8 cups mixed salad greens, torn

1 large ripe tomato, halved and thinly sliced

Directions

  1. Thinly slice half the onion; soak in cold water. Mince 1 tablespoon of the remaining onion half; process with the goat cheese, buttermilk, vinegar, olive oil, horseradish, mustard, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste in a blender until smooth. Add 1 tablespoon water if needed.
  2. Put the potatoes in a pot of salted water; bring to a simmer and cook until tender, about 18 minutes. Drain and pat dry. Meanwhile, put the eggs in another pot of salted water; boil for 8 to 10 minutes, then remove to a bowl of cold water. Add the green beans to the same pot of boiling water; cook until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain, run under cold water and pat dry. Peel and slice the eggs.
  3. Drain the red onion slices. Toss in a bowl with the salad greens, green beans and half of the dressing. Top with the potatoes, tomato and hard-boiled egg slices. Drizzle with the remaining dressing.
