  1. Thaw frozen corn just a bit then dump all the ingredients in the bowl and mix.

  14. Great minds think alike. I just posted some easy, light and healthy summer dishes. I would love this and it is on my list for sure! I eat lighter in the heat of summer plus I don't want to spend much time in the kitchen....I want to be outside....working in my yard and little garden. Thanks so much!
