This classic American picnic salad gets a modern makeover with frozen green beans, white cannellini beans, edamame beans and a grainy mustard vinaigrette. In addition to being delicious, beans are also an excellent source of fiber and protein.
Cook a 12-ounce bag cut green beans as the label directs. Whisk 3 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 tablespoon grainy mustard, 1 minced garlic clove and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a bowl. Cook 1 chopped red onion in olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, 2 minutes. Add one 15-ounce can drained cannellini beans, one 10-ounce bag thawed frozen edamame and the green beans; heat through. Toss with the dressing, sprinkle with parsley.
