Colorful Bean Hot Salad

This is another makeshift recipe which can be modified with different vegetables and beans to suit individual taste.  This is not a traditional salad as it is sautéed, but I think it looks like a 'Hot Salad' so that is what I am calling it.  Hooray for eating lots of colors!
