Garden Bean Salad

Very quick meal. You can make this lower in salt by using home-cooked dry beans and defrosted frozen green beans instead of canned. I always keep cooked dried beans in zip lock bags in the freezer – they thaw under running water in about the same time it takes to open a can.

Edamame Salad

Edamame are vibrant, tasty green soybeans in the shells, and are readily available in most frozen sections of supermarkets and health food stores. If edamame is not readily available, you can substitute chick peas.

    • At The End Of The The Rainbow

And it you look even more closely, you’ll see the residue of another  one above it where the clouds are breaking through. It is the Spring of 2014 on the Palouse. This […]
