Easy Green Beans Salad with Carrots and Corn

Easy Green Beans Salad with Carrots and Corn

I love how the flavors and textures are combined in this easy carrots and green beans salad. The vegetables are so sweet and delicious! And the best thing is that it takes no time to make.

Adding a legume such as chickpeas, black beans, or French lentils increases the already great protein content of this dish.

The dressing is one of those all-purpose that can be added to any salad. I always make a double batch to keep in the refrigerator as it is so good!
