    We've all had Three and Four Bean Salad. This is an easy version that is less bean and more vegetable.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup French haricots vert
    • 1 cup red radish, thinly sliced and cut into matchsticks
    • 1 cup zucchini, thinly sliced and cut into matchsticks
    • 1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced and cut in half
    • 1/2 cup red pepper, cut in small dice
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
    • 1/2 cup sugar (I use Sugar in the Raw, but white table sugar is fine)
    • 1/4 cup olive oil (not extra virgin) or 1/4 cup vegetable oil
    • 1 cup garbanzo beans or 1 cup chickpeas, canned
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon, slightly crushed

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook haricots vert or string beans in boiling, salted water until crisp tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and run under cold water to stop cooking. Cut into 1 1/2 inch - 2 inch pieces, if desired; set aside.
    2. 2
      Combine the red radish, red onion, and red pepper (hey, all the red stuff!) and sprinkle with the salt. Stir to combine. Strain for 30 minutes over a.
    3. 3
      bowl or into the sink (liquid is discarded). After the 30 minutes, rinse under cold water and shake the strainer a few times to lose some of that water. Let drain another 5 minutes or so.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, heat cider vinegar and sugar in a small saucepan, over medium heat just until sugar is dissolved. Add oil and stir; set aside.
    5. 5
      In a large bowl, combine garbanzo beans, zucchini, and drained and strained vegetables. Pour vinegar mixture over and mix.
    6. 6
      Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning stir and recover. It will be ready by lunchtime!

      A nice fresh salad that has a nice mix of textures and flavors. Healthy too! I didn't salt the veggies and strain according to directions(I forgot). Thanks and good luck!
