Beans are a go-to pantry staple for salad and quick meals. Canned are quick, but dried tend to have less sodium and are more cost effective.
Grilled Peppers and Lentil Salad
Tender, savory lentils paired with cooked peppers and cilantro converts this dish from a bland bean salad to a delectable and healthy meal. Use any combination of sweet bell peppers you like: green, red, yellow, and purple.
