I got this recipe from my mother-in-law, who got it from a colleague. She knows how much I like light bean and corn salads, so she made it with me in mind, for a bridal shower we were throwing. She thought I would love it, and I did! :) I've got a couple other bean & corn salad recipes I enjoy, but this one is a bit different because of the rice and salsa. Good for you and tastes good, too. Prep time is mostly due to the time it takes to cook the rice.
