This caught my eye on Kalyn’s Kitchen~ who can resist the colors! Looks as though she adapted it from another recipe on Melle Cotte, another great website with delectable fresh food recipes. If you want to make this one taste even better, try using fresh beans instead of canned. Mangia, mangia!

1 can kidney beans, rinsed well and drained
1 can of chickpeas, rinsed well and drained
1/2 cup chopped green onion (or more as you desire)

1 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
Dressing:
3 TB  fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1/2 tsp garlic puree (or use finely minced fresh garlic)

Preparation:

2. Combine the beans, green onions, tomatoes and parsley in a large mixing bowl.
