My Favorite Friday: Recipe Edition

Rumor on twitter is that people want to know our favorite recipes this week. I'm still in summer mode so I'll share any easy bean salad. I love this recipe since the only cooking is a few minutes of steaming, I always have everything but the green beans on hand and it doesn't taste like it only took 10 minutes to make.

3 Bean Salad

1/2 pound Green beans: snap or cut in half and remove ends, steam for 5 minutes. I don't have a steamer so I use a metal colander in a pot, works great!

Chickpeas and Red Kidney Beans: open one can of each and rinse.

Dressing: whisk together
1/4 cup Red wine vinegar
1/2 cup Olive Oil
2 tsp Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp Sugar

Put everything in a bowl and mix it around.  Top with parsley, salt and pepper if you'd like.  I like to let the beans cool, but it's delicious right now if you're ready to eat!

Bring it to a picnic, a barbecue or school lunch. Enjoy!
