Bean Salad recipe

I got a request for the recipe, so here goes:
1 tin each of black beans, channa and kidney beans (drained, rinsed in fresh water and drained again)
2 small onions (red or white - whatever you prefer) finely diced
1 cup of frozen corn kernels (defrosted and drained)
2 cups of fresh bean sprouts (lightly scalded and drained)
2 stalks of celery chopped
a sprinkling of fresh parsley and cilanthro

The dressing:
equal parts olive oil and cider vinegar (say, half-cup each)
about a tablespoon of good grainy mustard (or dijon)
half teaspoon each of salt and black pepper
1 tablespoon of brown sugar (or honey)
2 or 3 cloves of fresh garlic

Combine all the dressing ingredients in a bottle and shake well. (Whatever is leftover should be kept in your fridge.)

Gently combine all the salad ingredients so as not to mash any of the beans. Drizzle over your dressing. Plonk it in the fridge for a couple of hours and serve.
