Succotash Salad

Succotash Salad

I remember having succotash a few times when I was a kid. I didn’t like Lima beans all that much- but I did like saying succotash.

I  like Lima beans now, and use them often in soups and stews. I had several ears of sweet corn and a bag of Lima beans in the freezer so it seemed natural to make this salad. The addition of sweet pepper, sweet onion, fresh chopped parsley and a simple apple cider vinegar dressing and it was good to go.

Here is the recipe. This might be a fun salad for your Labor Day picnic.

1 lb. lima beans, cooked and cooled
