zesty three-bean salad

I am loving this salad I made last night.  I have eaten it as a side, a snack and on top of a spinach salad.  It is so yummy!  My kids even love it too!  We love our beans around here!


2 cups frozen sweet soybeans (edamame)

1 15 oz can of kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1 15oz can of garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained

1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1/4 cup olive oil

1 tsp. finely shredded lime peel

1/4 cup lime juice


1.  Prepare soybeans according to package directions.  Drain in colander and rinse with cold water.

2.  In a large bowl combine the cooked soybeans, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, onion, and cilantro

3.  In small bowl whisk together oil, lime peel, lime juice, and 1/4 tsp salt.  Pour over bean mixture and toss to coat.  Cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours.  Stir well before serving.

Makes 10 servings.  (or less if you eat as much as me!!!!)
