Summer Bean Salad with Corn & Tomatoes

An adaptation of Chef Kindred's (Kindred's Restaurant NC) Bean,tomato, corn salad in with pot likker. Different & very good!

My sister, who lived for years in Georgia, came to visit, I had leftover pork shoulder (Momofuku’s Bo Ssam, to be exact – that was a big roast!) and I had just come across the “original” Brunswick stew on a blog, His Blessed Kid.
