Ingredients

1/2 cup rice wine vinegar

1/2 cup grapeseed oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 pound fresh green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces, steamed and cooled

1 1/2 cups canned garbanzo beans, drained

1 1/2 cups canned dark red kidney beans, drained

1 red onion, diced

1 red bell pepper, stem and seeds removed and diced

1 English cucumber, peeled and sliced in quarters lengthwise and each quarter sliced into 1/3-inch pieces

1 tablespoon minced fresh mint leaves

1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley leaves, plus some small sprigs for garnish

1/2 cup grape tomatoes, sliced in 1/2 lengthwise

Directions

  1. Whisk the vinegar, oil and salt and pepper together in a bowl with a tight fitting lid, then add the green beans, garbanzo beans, red kidney beans, and onion and seal with the lid. Shake gently to coat the beans. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper, and then refrigerate overnight.
