Best Dip EVER

You are looking at what is quite possibly my absolute favorite thing to eat with a chip. 
This bean salsa/dip/ it what you will, it is fantastic and that is all that matters.
I can promise you that if you make this, it will be a hit.
I got the recipe from my mother and I honestly have no clue where she got it from.
It is so addicting and so delicously fresh that you will not be able to stop eating it.
These "fritos" or corn chips, are what we have found to be the most yummy with this dip.
You could also use any other chip you desire...but I'm telling you, Fritos+bean salsa=crack (as in ridiculously addicting, you may need rehab after trying just once kind of crack).
That was not very PC, and for that I apologize.
But really, after you taste this, you'll get it.

1 can each of pinto beans, black beans, black eyed peas and northern beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can of corn
1 green and 1 red pepper finely chopped
1 medium onion finely chopped
3 stalks of celery, chopped
salt and pepper

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup vinegar
1/2 cup veg. oil (I used safflower)

Combine dressing ingredients in a sauce pan, bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is completely dissolved.  Remove from heat and cool completely.  Then toss the dressing with all other ingredients.
