A simple salad with black beans, garbanzo beans, corn and edamame! Three bean salad takes on a whole new meaning!
I never liked eating beans when I was a kid. It wasn’t until I started cooking for myself that I realized how much I love beans, just not the kinds my mom had served. I love black beans, garbanzo beans, edamame (soy beans) and kidney beans (only in chili, however). It’s the meaty, starchy beans like cannellini, great northern and lima beans that I find repulsive. They all taste too beany for me.
I consider myself quite lucky because my family loves eating all my favorite beans. The beans I love are small, but mighty and have a way of just bursting in your mouth. All three beans (black, garbanzo and soy) are subtle, easy to flavor and pair well with anything. What’s even better, each one tastes fantastic all on their own!
This salad was made with canned beans. Sure, I could go through the trouble of soaking dried beans, but who has that kind of time? Cans help me save prep time and get a healthy, homemade meal on the table more often. I’m all for making my life easier without sacrificing flavor or nutrition. I find a well-stocked pantry – or “cantry” – help me make hearty, flavorful, nutritious meals I can feel good about.
This salad with black bean and edamame is tossed with a dressing made with olive oil, lime juice and a hint of cumin. It really couldn’t be simpler and the taste is so lively and fresh.
Kids these days have it made, their tender lips have never once touched a dreaded lima bean! Lucky.
