Summer Succotash

I absolutely love simple side dishes like this one that are amazing with almost no additional seasonings. This Summer Succotash is a vibrant combination of so many beautiful and delicious vegetables that are available everywhere this time of year. The veggies are so crisp and fresh, this succotash is almost like a salad. It cooks so fast, it probably takes longer to prep all the veggies than to actually cook it. You can do almost all the prep work in advance, so it will be come together in a flash during the hectic dinner hour.

It’s like a beautiful rainbow with all the pretty pops of color. You can serve this as a side dish or on top of rice for a light dinner or lunch. I love to serve this along with grilled or roasted fish or chicken. It’s healthy, gorgeous and has a ton of flavor from all the varieties of veggies.  Continue reading…
