Green and Wax Bean Salad

I didn't feel like cooking a big meal last night, so I threw together this delicious and filling salad using some fresh green and wax beans. The blanched beans are tossed with tomatoes, capers, chickpeas and a light lemon vinaigrette. A complete meal filled with protein and fiber, this is a great way to get some veggies and quickly throw together a light dinner.
