White beans salad with Egyptian flavors

As you can guess, white beans salad is not an Egyptian dish. However, I cannot see why not to engage some Egyptian flavors in it. I did not have a prepared recipe for that one ahead of time so I just opened my fridge, checked my pantry and went with the flow. As I am trying my best to switch to more healthy alternatives, this salad definitely makes it easier for me to stick to a healthy diet since it tastes really good and refreshing! Enjoy 🙂

Ingredients

1 can of cooked white beans
1 small can of sweet corn
1/2 small onion minced very thinly
1/2 diced bell pepper
1 small diced tomato
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
1 lime juice
1 tsp dried mint
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp olive oil
1 minced garlic (optional)
Salt and pepper

Open the can of beans, wash and drain in a medium bowl.
