I decided that my 30 days of beans needed another bean salad. For this one, I decided to switch up the flavors and try something new. I selected beans that would create a pretty color combination–garbanzo, edamame, and kidney beans. I added onion to enhance their flavor. I believe that onions and beans are a natural pairing. I combined all of the beans and the onion in a bowl.
The finished salad was simple and delicious. I stored it in the fridge for a couple of hours to allow the flavors to meld together. Then, I served it alongside some barbecued meat. It was a delicious and refreshing side dish. I will definitely be making it again.
