Bean Salad -Aunt Virginia's Recipe

I found this in my Mom's handwriting, and it was "delicious" according to my Mom. My Aunt Virginia lived in a suburb of Phoenix, Az. from the time I was perhaps 5 yrs. old,and I lived in Ma., so I missed her a lot. She was my mom's only Sister,and Aunt V. loved to grow roses and she had fruit trees in her yard, and she enjoyed cooking also.
Her grandchild called my Mom, "Aunt Sister", because she heard Virginia calling her "sister", and she heard her dad call her "aunt"! I love the names children create for people!
