Maybe I’m showing my age or generation here, but who can make succotash without saying, “sufferin succotash.” Ha! Did Sylvester the Cat ever catch the elusive Tweety? We never did want Tweety to get caught did we? Maybe it’s because Tweety is so darn cute. It intrigues me how some cultures and people hold certain animals sacred while others slaughter them in massive assembly line fashion, like cows for example. Don’t worry, I’m not getting all self-righteous here – it’s all about the succotash.

I made this dish for a party about a month ago now. This recipe is a great summer side, perfect for any bbq. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1/3 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/3 Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp Sugar
1 Red Pepper, chopped
½ Red Onion, chopped
½ Tsp Chili Powder
2 (14oz Pkg) frozen Baby Lima Beans, steamed
3 (11oz can) Corn, drained/rinsed (I used 1 can white shoepeg and 2 cans sweet)
1 Pint Sweet Grape Tomatoes, sliced
Salt/Pepper to taste

Directions:
-Combine chopped red peppers, onions, tomatoes, corn and lima beans.
-In a separate container whisk together: olive oil, vinegar, mustard and sugar. Toss all ingredients together; top with chili powder and salt/pepper to taste then refrigerate. Enjoy!
