Patricia Mickelson of San Jose, California came up with this oh-so-easy, colorful combination while looking for a veggie side dish to complement her Mexican dinners. Corn, zucchini, salsa and fresh, crunchy flavor make this recipe a keeper!

"Aaa-Mazing!! So simple, but so elegant and delicious... I did add a pat of butter to the veggies after they cooked, plus salt and pepper to our taste - thanks Patricia!!!"

"This is seriously messed up. I gave it 5 starsk, but when it posted, it changed the 5 stars to 1 star. This is a great recipe. I will make it over and over but now the averages are skewed. Sure hope Erik can fix this!"

"I had a problem rating this recipe. I clicked on 5 stars but when it posted it only posted as 1 star. This skewed the average down to 3 stars. This is a great recipe. I hope Erik can fix the problem. I feel really bad, but I didn't realize it had switched to 1 star until it was too late to do anything about it. I tried to edit it and put it back to 5 stars and it wouldn't let me."

"This is incredibly easy and just wonderful. Love that it uses fresh garden veggies in the summer. The only thing I would even consider adding is lime juice and fresh cilantro. I love this stuff!"

"I think some black beans rinsed and drained would be good in this too"
