Baudelaire White Bean Salad

After I finished the last book in A Series of Unfortunate Events I was inspired to make the salad described in an early chapter and, my friends, it was delicious. The book merely listed the ingredients, so the quantities are pretty vague: just do whatever feels right.

Ingredients
One can of white beans, drained
3-4 roma tomatoes, chopped (the book said cherry tomatoes but I'm sure any tomato will do)
Handful of fresh basil leaves, chopped
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
2-3 tablespoons lime juice (I like lots of lime juice)
Cayenne pepper
Salt and ground black pepper (not canon; optional)

Combine all ingredients, chill, and serve! The book said the salad was very refreshing on a hot day, and indeed it is.
