Oriental 6 bean salad

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Garbanzo beans (canned, drained) (chickpeas)
1 cup Kidney beans (canned, drained)
1 cup Lima beans (canned or fresh)
1 cup Mung beans (chinese bean sprouts) fresh
1 \N Chunk tofu
\N \N Soy sauce
\N \N Ginger
1 cup Soy beans (fresh)
1 bunch YA (??) beans (oriental long beans...12-18\" long)
1 \N Artichoke heart
\N \N Red bell pepper, julienned
\N \N Water chestnuts, sliced
\N \N Garlic
\N \N Sesame oil


DRESSING Mix dressing ingredients up together. Break tofu up into small bite sized pieces. (sorry I didn't get the amounts for the dressing, but he was going so fast, I missed it if he gave actual amounts...) Allow to sit while preparing the rest of the salad.

SALAD Mix all salad ingredients except for the YA beans together in a bowl. Save three Ya beans for each plate. Braid them (as in hair) and lay the braided Ya bean around the side of each salad plate. If there is any leftover Ya beans, chop them and add to salad. Once salad has been thoroughly tossed, place mound on each plate. Pour dressing over top and serve immediately.
