Yes another salad! This salad is so easy to make, I whip it up all the time. I've even brought it to potlucks. This is actually meant as a side-dish but I eat is as a main dish. It's got your protein, green veggie, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. There's a secret ingredient that makes it hard to stop eating! Check it out.
Adapted from Vegan Heartland:
1 pound green beans, ends trimmed, I leave them long cuz it looks prettier
1 cup garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup red kidney beans, drained and rinsed

2 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar, or white wine vinegar
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 Tablespoon pure maple syrup, surprise!
Salt and pepper to taste, about 1/4 teaspoon
Steam or blanch green beans (or get the microwave in a bag kind), and cool

Eat and feel good!
