About This Recipe

Succotash is such a Southern sounding word. It is actually a side dish made from lima beans and corn. And it’s delicious.

The dish was probably developed originally because it combines a grain and a legume, two foods with incomplete protein, to make a complete protein. Besides, it tastes great!

But there’s no need to relegate this combination to a side dish. Add some cheese and tortellini and other veggies to make a main dish salad. I have used succotash to make another main dish salad – Chicken and Pasta Succotash Salad.

This great combination is one of my favorite summer salads. Try it soon!



Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.


In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, honey mustard, and lemon juice and whisk to combine.


Cook the tortellini according to package directions until tender. Drain and add to the dressing in the bowl.


Cook the lima beans and corn according to package directions. Drain and add to the dressing. Mix gently.


Add the bell peppers, grape tomatoes, and cheese to the salad and stir.


Cover and chill for a few hours before serving on lettuce.
