Perfect for summer: Fresh and tasty bean, chickpea, and corn salad

Give me a good salad any day – the more there is in it, the better. A few weeks ago, I needed something to eat that was fast and satisfied that need for a meal that felt refreshing. Thankfully, I had just enough in the kitchen to make one of my go-to summer favourites – a Bean, Chickpea, and Corn Salad with cucumber, red peppers, red onion, and a simple, homemade dressing.
