Servings: 4 to 6
This combination of corn, beans, and squash is inspired by the “three sisters:” key crops of indigenous Americans that were grown together. It uses peak summer zucchini instead of winter squash. Lima or canary beans can substitute for the black-eyed peas.

I liked the combination of peas, corn and zucchini with the fresh basil, but the salad dressing was a bit bland. It was overwhelmed by the other ingredients. If I make this again, I’d increase the mustard and vinegar to give it more punch.
Oh yum. I always groan when someone posts a review where they totally changed the recipe, but I can't resist. This dressing is delicious and the combination appealed to the whole family. Due to shortages, I substituted dried christmas limas (one of the few beans I can grow) and grilled the zucchini to be more acceptable to the young ones. I will continue to make this as a new family favorite!
