Summer Succotash Salad with Tangy Lime Vinaigrette
Summer Succotash Salad with Tangy Lime Vinaigrette is an easy succotash salad recipe packed with grilled vegetables and lime dressing!
Summer’s in full swing around here, which is part of the reason that I’ve completely lost my focus. Last week I only posted one recipe because I haven’t been able to keep a regular routine.
I did ok the first week, then last week my kids had various camps to go to and activities, which meant every few hours I was shuttling them from Point A to Point B.
I finally just told myself to do the bare minimum to keep my sanity, and I’m glad I did. And I think everybody else in my house is glad I did, too. 🙂
Summer Succotash Salad
So let’s talk about this summer succotash salad recipe shall we? It really doesn’t get much more awesome than this when it comes to summer sides. Grilled corn is a staple in my house all summer long, and I toss it into everything like this quinoa salad and street corn salad. I can’t get enough!
This summer succotash includes plenty more produce that I can’t get enough of either, like avocado, fava beans, cherry tomatoes, green beans, green onions, and basil!
If you love this recipe, you’ll also love my succotash pasta salad.
What is succotash?
Succotash is a southern dish that’s primarily corn and lima beans, and it’s sometimes mixed with bell peppers, tomatoes, or other shell beans.
It’s virtually a grab-all-the-produce-you-have-in-your-kitchen kind of dish, mix it up, and call it done.
Recipe tips and substitutions
- The glory of this summer succotash salad is that anything goes. Substitute the fava beans with lima beans like classic succotash, or peas would be a great option as well.
- I grilled my corn and avocado, but if you prefer not to, simply boil the corn (or use frozen!), and use fresh avocado.
