Black bean chickpea mango salad

The original recipe calls for basil instead of cilantro, but I think the cilantro works perfectly in this (and is less expensive : D). 

Bean Corn and Mango Salad
adapted from Stylish Cuisine

1 ripe mango, chopped small
1 red bell pepper, chopped small
1 - 15 oz. can black beans
1 - 15 oz. can garbanzo beans
1 - 15 oz. can corn, drained
2 limes, zested and juiced
1/3 cup olive oil
2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup roughly chopped cilantro (or 1/2 cup basil)
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
salt and pepper to taste

1. In a colander, place together black beans and garbanzo beans and rinse until foam doesn't form, then sit to the side to dry.
2. Whisk together lime juice and zest, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, cilantro, cumin, and salt and pepper.
3. Once beans have dried, combine corn, bell pepper, beans, and mango in a bowl with a lid. Combine with vinaigrette, cover, and refrigerate for an hour. Toss again before serving.
