I love beans! I want a few simple recipes for bean salads that will
keep a few days in the fridge, and that I can take to work for lunch during the week. The simpler the better - short prep time, few ingredients.

Things I hate which should not be in the bean salad:
canned green beans (frozen or fresh is ok; any other canned bean except lima is ok)
onions (garlic is A-OK)
peppers of any kind (bell, jalapeno, etc.)
Recipes that have any of the above ingredients are ok if the ingredient can be left out without compromising the salad too much.
A black-or-red bean and couscous-or-rice salad would be ideal, but I'm having a hard time finding simple recipes for those.
I prefer using canned beans to dry beans (quicker prep, less chance of undercooked beans).
Suggestions for good cookbooks are also welcome.
