Black Bean & Corn Salad

Francine Hardy would make something like this to complement her Texan brisket and mashed potatoes. Oh! So good!!!!
1 15 oz. can black beans
1 15 oz. can of corn (no salt)
2 red or orange bell peppers
1/4 C chopped red onions
3 cloves of garlic, minced
a little less than 1/4 C olive oil
3 T red wine vinegar
1/3 C chopped cilantro
1 T lime
1/2 jalapeno, minced (optional)
salt and pepper to taste (but if serving with salty chips, you really should omit)

Combine all in a bowl and let it sit for at least an hour for flavors to develop. Serve with chips or as a side dish.

Serves 6-8
