3/4 pound  green beans, trimmed
1 1/2 pounds  small red-skinned potatoes, cut into eighths
1 3/4 pounds  cooked king crab legs, thawed if frozen (see Tip), meat removed and cut into 1-inch pieces
3 stalks  celery, thinly sliced
6   radishes, halved and thinly sliced

5 tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons  minced fresh basil

1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add beans and cook until bright green, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a colander using a slotted spoon; refresh under cold water.
2. Add potatoes to the boiling water. Cook until tender when pierced with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain in a colander; refresh under cold water until room temperature.
3. Toss the green beans and potatoes with crab, celery, radishes and onion in a large bowl.
4. Whisk garlic, lemon juice, vinegar and mustard in a small bowl; slowly whisk in oil. Whisk in basil, salt and pepper. Discard the garlic; pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat.
