3 Bean Salad

I'm already bored of my regular dinners now...phew Its only 4 days of my diet :(. 
I wanted a change for dinner , so was going thru many sites today and came up with many healthy salad recipes.And this is one among them. I modified the original recipe totally according to my taste.
Any 3 variety Beans 1/2 cup each, Soaked and cooked
[I used Chickpea, Kidney Beans, Black Beans]
1/4 cup onion finely chopped
1/4 cup tomatoes
1/4 cup Red Bellpeppers sliced finely
1/4 cup Green Bellpeppers sliced finely
Seasoning: Oregano, Italian 
3 Green chili
Salt to taste
1 tsp olive oil
Preparation [5 mins Easy Healthy cooking]
1.Soak beans in cold water overnight or for at least 8 hours . Drain soaking water, then pressure cook the beans or put beans into pan with fresh water and simmer until beans are tender. This can take from 45 minutes to several hours, depending on how fresh the beans are, so plan ahead. 
2.Put oil in a pan , once oil is hot add Green chili and Bell peppers and cook for 2-3 mins. Add the seasioning and cobine well and moove the ingredients to Salad bowl
3.Put chopped onions,tomatoes and cooked beans in the salad bowl
