2. Scrub the potatoes under running cold water or merely rinse if they are very clean; do not peel. Steam or boil until tender and leave to cool for an hour or more.

3. Peel the potatoes if wished and cut into pieces; chop the beans. Mix together in a large salad bowl or serving dish, adding salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste.

4. Sprinkle with the apple mint leaves, torn into small pieces and serve as part of a cold summer lunch.
