We are still in the blistering heat of a California summer here, so this was perfect because it involved no cooking whatsoever. I bought the corn frozen and let it thaw, purchased canned beans which I rinsed and drained, then just mixed everything together! Easy and no heat in my kitchen. A perfect meal!
