Summer Succotash

Succatash Succotash is corn based, in my book, but after that, anything goes.  Last night's succotash consisted of corn, green beans, lima beans, basil and a white balsamic vinaigrette.  Delicious and summery. 

Amount is all relative to how many mouths you have to feed.  I used 6 ears of corn, with the corn taking off the ear after cooking ( boiled method but you could grill it too). 1 lb of green beans, cut and blanched.  2 packages of frozen lima beans cooked,  2 big handfuls of chopped basil. 

Vinaigrette:

2 tbsp. white balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tsp. honey
1 tbsp. dijon mustard

Mix all that together and then slowly whisk in olive oil until the dressing gets thick and tastes right to you.  About 1/2 cup of olive oil or less.  Sometimes I like the dressing a little more tart and then I use less olive oil.

Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature before mixing.  Tastes just as good the next day!
