I love bean salads. This is a great, healthy, meatless side dish, great for picnics. It's super quick and it only gets better as it sits and the flavors meld. This recipe is based on an old Rachael Ray 30-minute meals recipe that was actually one of the first recipes I ever cooked, way back before I started cooking professionally.

What you will need

1 can (15oz.) cannelini beans

1 red bell pepper

4 sprigs fresh Italian Parsley

1 lemon

Salt and pepper
