The Fresh Summer Bean Salad  is our version of the classic bean salad, we have added green and sugar snaps beans in a light basil vinaigrette for a twist. It’s light, full filling and packed with proteins and fiber. If you have extra time, try homemade beans instead of canned, you can make them ahead of time and keep them refrigerated, in their liquid for up to 3 days.
