"This recipe was actually a bit of a fluke, the result of what my sister had in her refrigerator when I went to visit. The bottom line is that the ingredients of this salad blended together into a heavenly combination that was devoured immediately! Hope you enjoy it!"

  1. Place the beans in a saucepan with enough water to cover them by one inch. Bring beans to a slow boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer until tender but not mushy (about 35 minutes). Set aside to cool.
  2. When the beans have cooled, place them in a large bowl. Add the celery, carrots, parsley, white onion, and mint; toss to blend.
  3. For dressing, blend olive oil, orange and lemon juice, garlic, coriander, salt, pepper, and brown sugar in a blender for 6 seconds. Transfer to a small saucepan, and simmer over low heat for five minutes. Remove from heat, and cool. Pour dressing over the bean salad, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.

As usual I did my share of substitutions for what I had on hand. Lime for lemon, dried parsley for fresh, cumin for coriander, and Equal for brown sugar. I was happy to put to use the mint grow...
