Fast & Easy Dinner: Two-Bean Salad with Tarragon Dressing

My brother has recently decided to change his diet. Instead of eating tons of fast food, he wants to consume more vegetables. I suggested he eat one hearty and filling salad a day. This two bean salad is perfect for him because it's chock full of flavorful vegetables. The beans provide much needed protein and a simple but well seasoned dressing is made with balsamic vinegar and dijon mustard.
