An extremely healthy, low sodium, low fat, high protein, high fiber snack or salad that is available in most Kroger delis (it doesn't really have any caviar in it).
1 lb. bag frozen edamame beans (use shelled edamame - sometimes labeled as mukamame), thawed.
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 cup chopped yellow red pepper
1 cup chopped green pepper
1 cup chopped red or yellow onion (depending on how much you like onions)
2 cans (15 oz.) Simple Truth black beans, rinsed and drained (rinsing canned vegetables removes the majority of the sodium that they are generally packed in)
2 cans (15 oz.) Simple Truth garbanzo beans (chick peas), rinsed and drained
½ cup chopped fresh parsley
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
½ cup seasoned rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon miso (a fermented soybean sauce) may be mixed into the vinegar to add a delicious earthy flavor.
Mix all ingredients together and toss in vinegar.
