Texas Two-Step Corn Medley

 Texas Two-Step Corn Medley
I came up with this pleasing pairing of corn and summer squash as a side dish for a Mexican buffet. Family and friends who have tried it are generous with their compliments and recipe requests. This delicious dish is a regular menu item when husband Bob and I entertain. -Pauline Howard, Lago Vista, Texas
