Four Bean Salad w/Honey Dijon Vinaigrette

Check it out at Southern Bite

Spring is here & lighter, refreshing side dishes need revisiting. This is a favorite adapted from a recipe that I had seen with an oriental dressing. My Honey Dijon Vinaigrette is one of my favorites for several salads...Chopped Salad, Spinach/Strawberry/Pecan/Blue Cheese Salad. 

Four Bean Salad w/ Honey Dijon Vinaigrette
12 oz. fresh green beans, split lengthwise
8 oz. wax beans, split lengthwise
2 cups frozen edamame
1 can garbanzo beans, drained
1 orange or red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 cup champagne vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tsp. coarse salt
1 tsp. coarse ground pepper 
Prepare green beans & wax beans. Add edamame & steam in microwave for 3 minutes. Rinse with cold water & drain. Add drained garbanzo beans, chopped pepper & chopped red onion.
Whisk together dressing ingredients. Pour over bean mixture, toss to coat. Let stand 30-40 minutes at room temp, toss again & serve. Refrigerate any salad that is left.
