   If cooking your own pinto and black beans, cook until firm-tender and not
   mushy.  Combine pinto beans, black beansm garbanzo beans, green beans and
   wax beans in a large bowl.  Add green pepper and red onion. In a small
   bowl, mix oil, vinegar, salt, oregano, garlic powder and black pepper to
   taste.  Pour over salad and toss gently but thoroughly. Cover and
   refrigerate overnight.  Just before serving, add tomatoes and mayonnaise.
   Toss until well blended.
   
   Makes 6 to 8 servings.
