Aunt Bebe's Bean Bowl

Here’s what you need:
1 can green beans
1 can wax beans
1 can dark kidney beans
1 can lima beans
1 can chick peas
1 medium red onion, sliced very, very thin
1/3 C sugar
1 t salt
½ t pepper
1/3 C red wine vinegar
1/3 C salad oil

Here’s what you do:
Drain and rinse the beans. Mix the sugar, salt, pepper and vinegar over a low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Add in the oil. Pour the dressing over the beans and onions, making sure the onions get down in the dressing so they can pickle just a bit. Allow to marinate overnight. Serve.
