  • Snap each bean into 2 or 3 pieces. In a microwave-safe dish, combine beans and the water; cover. Microwave on 100 percent power (high) 6 to 7 minutes or just until crisp-tender but still vibrant green, stirring once. Drain. Rinse well with cold water; drain well.

  • In a large bowl, toss green beans with sweet pepper, edamame and scallions.

  • For dressing, in a screw-top jar combine garlic, oil, honey, lime juice, chili powder, salt and hot pepper sauce. Cover and shake well. Pour dressing over vegetables; toss to combine. Cover with foil or plastic wrap and chill at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours before serving.
