Baby greens are the solution when you want to make a salad without a lot of prep. They have tender stems, so you don't have to trim them–plus the leaves are already bite-size!

Ingredients

  • 8 oz yellow beans trimmed
  • 8 oz green beans trimmed
  • 1 bag (6 oz/170 g) baby spinach leaf
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion thinly sliced
  • 8 oz cremini mushrooms
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 cup canned chickpea drained and rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 4 hard-cooked eggs quartered
  • 3 tablespoons shaved Asiago cheese

Method

In saucepan of boiling water, blanch beans until tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, place spinach in large bowl; set aside.

In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; sauté onion until tender, about 5 minutes.
Add mushrooms, garlic, salt, pepper and thyme; cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are tender and no liquid remians, about 7 minutes.

Add beans, chickpeas and vinegar to skillet; cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Add to spinach, tossing to wilt and coat.

Arrange salad on plates. Top with eggs; sprinkle with Asiago.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: Sweet onions aren't as pungent as cooking white or red onions, which makes them a great choice for delicately falvoured salads. There are many varieties; Vidalia and Walla Walla are common ones.
