Corn, beans and squash are the principal foods of many Native American tribes. They’re called the sisters because they support one another. The corn grows tall, allowing the bean vine to twine around her stalk. The bean fixes the nitrogen in the soil, and the squash has big leaves that hold in moisture.

  • 2 unpeeled zucchini squash, julienned
  • 2 unpeeled summer squash, julienned
