green bean salad recipe
This fresh recipe is just what you need to spice up your usual salad selection.
While lettuce typically offers some key nutrients, green beans are considered one of the healthiest vegetables around. They provide a boost to our immune systems and are filled with antioxidants that have been shown to help prevent cancer and chronic diseases.
Green beans are in season from July to September and chickpeas are available throughout the summer. An added bonus: roasted chickpeas make a great snack on their own that the kids will love. Be sure to make an extra batch–they go fast!
