TJ's Marinated Bean Salad

I got pretty close in recreating the discontinued Trader Joe's marinated bean salad. The recipe could use some minor tweaks but it is good as it is. Any suggestions welcome.

1 15 oz. can each of kidney, garbanzo, and pinto or other light bean such as cannellini rinsed and left to drain in a colander.
In the bowl of your food processor mince 2 cloves of garlic and half of a medium onion. Add the juice of two lemons and a half cup of extra virgin olive oil and a handful of parsley leaves. Whir this up for a couple of seconds and add a teaspoon of sugar, a teaspoon of kosher salt, a teaspoon of dried oregano, and a teaspoon of dried thyme. Pulse a couple of times to blend and then (in a non reactive bowl) pour this marinade over the beans and stir to coat the beans. Refrigerate overnight and then serve at room temperature. Like I said this is close to the canned version TJ's used to carry and which I sorely miss.

I found this description elsewhere on the internet -- maybe adding white vinegar would be good...
"The bean salad is a 3 bean medley (Chickpeas, red kidney, and Romano
beans) in a lemon and white vinegar marinade with garlic, onion, and
oregano called Marinated Bean Salad and it is sold as a Trader Joe's
brand product."

I used my last can and I am so depressed. TJs had a chili recipe that had a jar of TJs original Salsa, a can of TJs Marinated Bean Salad, ground turkey and you normal chili seasonings, it is delicious. Your recipe for the bean salad sounds perfect.
