Chickpea & Green Bean Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Top Review by Mary Leverington

Some nice green beans arrived in the grocery store this week and I couldn't resist. I liked this salad very, very much and will make it again. You didn't really mean 1/8 CUP did you? I added what I thought to be 1/8 teaspoon, but it actually seemed to need more. Just curious.

  10. Shake them in a colander until they look very dry.
  11. Put beans in a separate bowl from chickpeas and pour bean dressing over them.

  13. Combine the two beans and mix well.
  14. It's best to let the chickpeas sit in their dressing for several hours before mixing them with the green beans so the chickpeas can absorb the flavors.
