Succotash is a quick, easy and a satisfying side dish that makes the best of fresh summer produce. Succotash is a dish consisting primarily of sweet corn or lima beans or other shell beans. Other ingredients may be added including tomatoes and green or sweet red peppers and many other seasonings like balsamic vinaigrette or even roasted tomatoes. Combining a grain with a legume provides a dish that is high in all essential amino acids. The Succotash is sometimes cooked in a casserole form, often with a light pie crust on top as in a traditional pot pie.
