The bold flavors of the lemon-cumin dressing in this healthy bean salad recipe make it a wonderful side dish to grilled beef or salmon. It’s also a star-spangled meatless main dish when served with rice, pasta or whole-wheat couscous. Couscous is a form of pasta available in your grocery store’s pasta aisle.
