iconomy's killer black bean salad

One can black beans drained
a thick slice white or red onion, finely chopped
half cup corn kernels
a thick slice red bell pepper, finely chopped
one clove garlic, finely chopped
salt and pepper of your choice to taste
a chopped bit of fresh parsley, cilantro, or maybe fresh mint if you have it
a tbsp olive oil
a tsp balsamic vinegar, or any good vinegar

Toss it and refrigerate until chilled. Really great with toasted pita or tortilla chips, or alone. It's light and refreshing, but has a bit of 'stick-to-it-iveness' that makes you feel like you've eaten something substantial.
