With its combination of smoky, grilled peppers, this is a salad which can be prepared well ahead. When you can find them, black beans look particularly effective. Cooking dried beans with a selection of herbs and a roughly chopped onion will add to their flavour when you want to use them for a salad, as here. It is much better to put on the dressing while the beans are still hot so that they will absorb it.
