Ingredients

6 cloves garlic, crushed
2 yellow or red sweet peppers, cut into strips 400 g
3 cups green kidney / flageolet beans (canned), rinced and drained 750 mL
1/4 cup olive oil 65 mL
2 tbsp wine vinegar 30 mL
1/8 tsp Espelette pepper (powder) 0.4 g
2 tbsp Italian parsley, fresh, chopped 10 g

  2. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the garlic cloves and cook 2-3 min until they are lightly coloured. Add the peppers then cook 8-10 min until they are a bit soft. Add the vinegar and flageolet beans. Season with salt and pepper, then add the Espelette or cayenne pepper (to taste). Heat through about 2 min, with stirring.
  3. Sprinkle with the chopped parsley then serve.

@RichVick: FYI here's the dictionary definition of Salad. "Salad is any of a wide variety of dishes, including vegetable salads; salads of pasta, legumes, eggs, or grains; mixed salads incorporating meat, poultry, or seafood; and fruit salads". As you can see, it applies to this recipe as well ;=)
