Kathleen’s Calico Bean Salad

My grandma brings this salad along to most family gatherings.  I enjoy keeping some in the fridge during the summer.  It is a great side dish, and keeps fresh for sometime.  If I have the last little bit to use up I add it to a green salad.  Please enjoy this family favorite.
