I think the flavor of chick peas might not go with the salad. Chick peas always taste like chicken to me and I don't think chicken really goes in a three bean salad. I probably should've mentioned that it's a three bean salad with an oil, vinegar, and sugar dressing. I always forget that there are different kinds of three bean salads with entirely different dressings. But I'll try chick peas anyway, I'll just make a small batch to test before making a big thing of it.
I don't know where I would find soy beans at. I know many of the local farmers grow them, but I have never seen them in the grocery stores. They're probably at one of those expensive, fancy grocery stores like Harris Teeter. I'll try looking there. I'd love to try soy beans, I've never had any before. Are they in the produce section or should I be looking for frozen soy beans? I don't know because I've never even seen them before.
I asked my mother where I can get soy beans from and she suggested Sims Farm. It took me a few seconds to figure out what she was talking about. Ha ha. What a funny mother.
