Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In large saucepan cook green beans in boiling lightly salted water for 10 minutes or just until tender; drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.

Instructions Checklist
  • In extra-large bowl combine vinegar, tomato juice, oil, wine, sugar, Worcestershire, mustard and garlic. Stir in beans, green onion, and carrot. Refrigerate, covered, 4 to 48 hours. Serve with a slotted spoon. Makes 12 (about 1-cup) servings.


Assemble and refrigerate 4 to 48 hours. The fresh green beans will lose some color as they marinate in the dressing. For brightly colored green beans cook and chill as directed, but do not add to salad. Cover and refrigerate separately, then toss in with the salad just before serving.

This was very good! I have never had edamame in a multi-bean salad, and its texture remains non-mealy and stands up well to the vinaigrette. The carrots also improved the texture, imparting a nice crunch. My daughter in law asked me to make it again soon!

I made this salad for 4 different parties in one week plus 1 at home meal, it was just the right 'Tangy Bring Along' for a hot mid July evening get together. I had to make 1 for my family because there was never any thing left to bring home, and the different hosts even kept the marinade for their own salad side.I must say, I didn't use the kidney beans, but did use about 24 oz. of fresh green beans because there were plenty in the garden.
