Memorial Day picnics are an opportunity to debut the first of the summer salads. Save time by choosing a make-ahead salad with simple ingredients. The Black Bean and Red Bell Pepper salad looks festive and is a perfect accompaniment to hamburgers, hotdogs and other grilled fare. For the best flavor, make the salad the day before the Memorial Day festivities.
