Weekend Recipe: Summer Succotash Salad
Cook's Country wanted to lighten up stodgy, old-school succotash by using fresh vegetables and minimizing the flavor-dulling cream and butter.
For a summer succotash salad recipe that lightens up succotash with fresh vegetables, we cooked all the vegetables in the same pot of well-salted simmering water, staggering their cooking times to ensure they all finished at the same time. Once the vegetables were tender, we rinsed them under cold water to stop their cooking and conserve their bright color. Most succotash salad recipes call for finishing the dish with butter or cream, but we opted for a light vinaigrette spiked with lemon juice, red onion and basil.
Summer Succotash Salad
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon honey
½ onion, red (small), minced
¾ pound green beans, ends trimmed and cut in half crosswise
2 ears corn, kernels removed from cobs
½ pound frozen lima beans
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
