We might be able to help you if there was a description of the beans or a picture.

Spanish white beans. They're already cooked in the can so you can add them to a salad or soup.

They have several names. Depends in which part of the country you grew up in. Name doesn't matter, just good eating.

I like to heat them up with a glob of butter added. I've never heard of them in a salad, but they would probably be good.

Butterbeans are a favorite of mine. I love to make my own!
