Rinse and drain the canned beans. Combine with the celery and onion in a large bowl and toss well. In a separate bowl, combine ingredients for the dressing and stir with a whisk until blended. Pour half of the dressing over the bean mixture, tossing to coat. Adjust seasonings as desired. Refrigerate the remainder of the dressing in a jar for your next bean salad!
