Easy Bean Salad

Here's an easy marinated bean salad that can be made with canned beans or your own cooked beans from dry.  Use any kind of beans you like...I used northern and pinto in this one.  Great accompaniment to grilled chicken or meat..

4 cups cooked beans, drained ( 2 cans)
1/2 cup diced red pepper
3/4 cup diced red onion
1 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup of your favorite Italian salad dressing
salt and pepper to taste
red wine vinegar ( optional)

Combine all ingredients except salt, pepper and red wine vinegar
Season to taste with salt and pepper
Chill for at least an hour
Before serving, re-season if necessary
(For a little sharpness, add a few shots of the red wine vinegar before serving)
