  • ½ cup chopped yellow bell pepper (about ½ large)

Prep time:
30 minutes

1. Put beans in a large bowl. Sprinkle with vinegar and salt. Mix lightly.

2. Put carrots in a small bowl with a tablespoon of water. Cook 3 minutes on HIGH in the microwave as you chop remaining vegetables. Drain. Add to bowl with beans.

3. Add tomatoes, bell pepper, celery, herbs, oil, black pepper and Italian seasoning. Toss lightly, so the beans don’t smash. Taste and adjust seasoning, if needed.

4. Refrigerate at least 1 hour for flavors to develop.

5. Served chilled or at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate leftovers. Keeps up to 1 week.
