Warm Mushroom, Potato and Haricot Verts Salad

I saw this bag of baby potatoes at the store this week.  They were so cute, I just had to pick them up!  Of course, you could use red or new potatoes just as easily.  Haricot verts are basically just skinny green beans.  Either one will do.  Similarly, any mushroom would be delicious in here.  Basically throw in whatever you have and enjoy! -Amanda
