Corn Salad with Black Beans and Tomatoes

Everyday we wander around our garden and we are greeted by bunches of bright green tomatoes, anticipation!  We are on the cusp of garden greatness with many varieties of the juicy fruit.  So we sit and wait and watch.  In the meantime, we enjoy organic tomatoes from Trader Joe's.  This cheery salad can be a refreshing accompaniment to any summer meal.
