Chick Pea Salad

So delicious.  Even meat loving people can appreciate this hearty salad.  The recipe is written for canned beans, but it's even better with cooled, prepared dried beans.

          1 can organic garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
          1 can organic black beans, rinsed and drained
          1 cup seedless cucumber, chopped
          1 apple, cored and chopped
          1 pear, cored and chopped (or another apple)
          2 large stalks of celery, sliced thin
          2/3 cup Vegenaise (or your favorite mayo)
          1 Tblsp honey or sugar
          1 1/2 tsp dry dill
          Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Gently pat the beans dry with a clean towel.
  2. Add all the beans, vegetables, and fruits into a large salad bowl.  
  3. Combine the vegenaise, sweetener, dill, salt, and pepper into a small mixing bowl and blend well.
  4. Pour the dressing over the top of the salad and toss to coat.
Chill and serve with flat bread or in crisp lettuce cups.
