ARTICHOKE THREE BEAN SALAD - Brought into the 21st Century...

ARTICHOKE THREE BEAN SALAD - An oldie classic is reimagined for the 21st century.

Artichoke Three Bean Salad

Join me in updating and bringing the classic three bean salad into the 21st century.

I did this by keeping some of the classic beans, exchanging some and adding in marinated artichokes, red pepper and cilantro. When it all comes together, you get an especially refreshing new combination of vibrant colors and flavors.

Serves: 6 to 8

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Suggested Tools:

· Serving bowl

· Small bowl

· Chopping board

· Colander

· Large mixing spoon

· Chopping knife

· Can opener

· 1 - 15.5 ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained

· 1 cup frozen edamame (thawed)

· 1 cup marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped well
