No-Measure Southwest Salad

This one's a no-measure, just dump the ingredients in easy-as-opening a can recipe I just made up throwing together what looked and sounded good this afternoon.

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can corn, drained
1 can garbanzo beans, drained
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
2 cloves garlic, pressed
Juice from 1 lime
1/2 medium jicama, peeled and diced
1 small handful cilantro, finely chopped
2 Tbsp olive oil
a few cranks of sea salt (roughly 1/2 tsp)
a small palmful of cumin (roughly 1 tsp)

And it is a simple as opening cans and chopping a few things! Just dump it all in a bowl and stir to combine! I'm thinking if you dice everything really small it would make a great dip for chips, but as-is, I'm eating it with a spoon!
