Low fat, high fiber, high protein salad.


1 pound green beans, trimmed and cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 15-ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 15-ounce can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup minced shallots
4 tbsp white wine vinegar

Steam or cook the green beans in a pot of boiling water for 3-4 minutes, until tender-crisp.
Drain and plunge beans into cold water to stop cooking and retain color.
Combine cooked green beans with cannellini beans, kidney beans and shallots in a large bowl.
Whisk vinegar, oil and mustard and drizzle over bean mixture.
Toss gently.
Serve chilled or at room temperature.
Serves: 6-8
