Bean Salad

This is an often requested favorite at potlucks. It's a marvelous start to a vegetarian meal. It also travels well and is a snap to make.

Preparation Time: less than 10 minutes if your beans are canned or pre-cooked

Ingredients:

1 can chickpeas, rinsed & drained
1 can black beans, rinsed & drained
1 can red beans, rinsed & drained
1 can Great Northern beans, rinsed & drained
1 bunch parsley, chopped
3 stalks celery, sliced
3 green onions, sliced
1 cucumber, cubed
2 tomatoes, cubed
1/2 cup lemon juice


Directions:

Combine all ingredients and toss. This is best served at room temperature the next day. Store it in the fridge but let it sit on the counter for 10-15 minutes before serving.

If you have some leftover, stuff it into a pita to make a quick sandwich or heat with some vegetable broth to make soup.
