Bean salads are perfect on hot summer days for meatless meals. There's so much to offer - flavor, texture, low in fat, high in fiber and full of flavor.
Your choice of veggies may be what's in the freezer (this is, after all, designed to be a pantry meal). Certainly, if you've other fresh veggies in the fridge, they'll do perfectly. For instance, this would be fantastic served stuffed in tomato halves.
