Asian Sweet-and-sour Four-bean Salad

Hot Chinese mustard and soybeans add an Asian flair to this fiber-rich bean salad -- perfect for pic...

Edamame, also known as green sweet soybeans, lends an Asian flair to traditional four-bean salad, made with in-season fresh green beans and canned garbanzo and kidney beans. All four beans are tossed with red onion and an Asian-flavored sweet-and-sour dressing made with rice wine vinegar, a little Chinese hot mustard and heart-healthy canola oil. This vibrantly colored and nutrient-rich salad is perfect for picnics, potlucks and tailgating. Look for jars of Chinese hot mustard in the Asian or ethnic foods aisle.

Makes about 12 servings (3/4 cup each)

3 1/2 cups fresh green beans (cut into 1- to 1 1/2-inch pieces)
2 cups frozen shelled edamame, thawed (or fresh, ready-to-eat edamame)
1 15- to 16-ounce can dark red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 15- to 16-ounce can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
3/4 cup chopped red onion
2/3 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup canola oil
1/2 teaspoon Chinese hot mustard
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1. In a covered glass dish, microwave cut green beans on high until crisp-tender (roughly 2 to 3 minutes).

2. Microwave edamame in a separate glass dish for about 1 to 2 minutes.

3. In a large bowl, combine green beans, edamame, kidney beans, garbanzo beans and red onions. Toss lightly.

4. In a separate small bowl, whisk together rice vinegar, canola oil, Chinese mustard, sugar, salt and pepper until thoroughly blended.

5. Pour dressing over bean-onion mixture and stir lightly to coat all ingredients.

6. Enjoy immediately or refrigerate in tightly covered container. Always stir lightly before serving.
