    1       c            Lima beans (canned or fresh)
    1       c            Mung beans (chinese bean
                         -sprouts) fresh
    1       c            Soy beans (fresh)
    1       bn           YA (??) beans (oriental long
                         -beans...12-18 long)
    1                    Artichoke heart
                         Red bell pepper, julienned
                         Water chestnuts, sliced
    1                    Chunk tofu
                         Soy sauce
                         Sesame oil
   DRESSING Mix dressing ingredients up together. Break
   tofu up into small bite sized pieces. (sorry I didn't
   get the amounts for the dressing, but he was going so
   fast, I missed it if he gave actual amounts...) Allow
   to sit while preparing the rest of the salad.
   SALAD Mix all salad ingredients except for the YA
   beans together in a bowl. Save three Ya beans for each
   plate. Braid them (as in hair) and lay the braided Ya
   bean around the side of each salad plate. If there is
   any leftover Ya beans, chop them and add to salad.
   Once salad has been thoroughly tossed, place mound on
   each plate. Pour dressing over top and serve
