If you’re unfamiliar with succotash, it’s not just an invention of Sylvester the Cat. It's actually a delicious, summery dish full of corn and lima beans, and really anything you have an abundance of in your garden. This recipe is the kind that transports you from wherever you are to a summer afternoon in the South.
Besides being simple to make, succotash is colorful and very filling, which makes it a good accompaniment to some of the more decadent Southern specialties you might be craving.
Pro tip: Lima beans, I’m told, are easy to grow yourself, and you can certainly use fresh beans if you have them. But for those of us who don’t have a garden teeming with bounty, this recipe calls for the frozen kind that you can pick up at any supermarket.
