Try this Green Bean Summer Salad!
Here is what you'll need:
1 1/2 pounds green beans - trimmed and halved
2 medium zucchini - diced
15 oz can of chick peas - drained and rinsed
1 cup corn kernels
1 pint cherry tomatoes - halved
6 green onions - thinly sliced
For the dressing:
1/2 cup fresh basil
1/4 cup parsley
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 clove garlic
pinch of salt
Place the green beans and zucchini in a large pot and lightly steam (for 10-15 minutes) or boil (for 5-7 minutes) until tender but still somewhat firm. Remove from heat, strain and rinse the vegetables with ice cold water, then set aside.
Meanwhile, make the dressing by combining all of the ingredients in a food processor and blending until the herbs are finely chopped.
In a large bowl, combine the drained chickpeas, corn, tomatoes and green onion. Add the blanched green beans and zucchini, then pour the dressing on top. Stir together until everything is well-coated. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
