Although typically made with fresh green lima beans, succotash is equally delicious with our dried Giant Peruvian Lima Beans. Bacon and sautéed onion lend richness and depth, while fresh corn, sherry vinegar, tomatoes and herbs offer sweet, fresh and tangy notes. Serve with grilled chicken or fish for a complete meal.
