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.
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!
Yum! This looks great! I’m going to have to try it.
