Tomato and Black Bean Salad

I can't take credit for this recipe.  This is one of my mom's, I'm not sure where she got it from.  Usually she'll find a recipe and then "doctor" it up.  She'll usually make this up and eat it for several days, today she served it at a family barbecue.  It's pretty yummy and super easy so I thought I'd share it with you.

Tomato and Black Bean Salad

1 carton grape tomatoes
2-3 shallots
1 package Feta cheese
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 bottle vinaigrette dressing (your choice)
Salt and pepper

In a serving bowl add the grape tomatoes (halved), 1 can black beans (if you prefer you could use quinoa instead), 2-3 shallots (finely chopped), Feta cheese and parsley (finely chopped).   

Add vinaigrette dressing (it should not be overly wet) and salt and pepper to taste.
