Tortellini Succotash Salad

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!
