Ingredients

8 oz (227 g) green beans, trimmed

8 oz (227 g) yellow beans, trimmed

1 cup (250 mL) shelled soy beans (edamame)

1 can (19 oz/540 mL) sodium reduced chickpeas, drained and rinsed

Directions

1In a saucepan of boiling water, cook green and yellow beans and soy beans for 3 minutes, drain well and rinse under cold water to chill. Cut green and yellow beans into 2 inch (5 cm) pieces. Set bean mixture aside.

2Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine chickpeas, celery, green onions and red pepper. Add bean mixture to bowl.
