I was at the doctors yesterday and was reading the February issue of Fitness Magazine and it had a recipe I wanted to try. It was a Three-bean salad recipe I don't remember the name but it had string beans, edamame & black beans in it with an apricot dressing.

Anyone have this issue, the March issue is at the stores now and I really want the recipe.


What can I do next?

So What Happened?

Thanks to Melissa I got the recipe! I made it that day, but got pulled away and didn't get to eat it until the next day and it was OK. I'll do some doctoring and perfecting (for my taste of course) and I'm sure it'll be awesome.

Thanks to everyone who responded!

Try this similar salad from Giada De Laurentiis - Everyday Italian:,,FOOD_99...

It uses edamame, green beans, yellow wax beans, and cherry tomatoes with a fresh herb vinaigrette. Read the reviews of the recipe for more info and how people adjusted the recipe.

I made this for dinner a few weeks ago and my husband LOVED it. We've had it twice since. My grocery store has a frozen bag of mixed green beans, wax beans, and carrots. So I just take the carrots out and use them for something else.

Dear L.,

If no one responds as having that issue, you might check the library. They may have a copy and you could make a copy of it there.
