You ain’t going to be sufferin’ after eatin’ this succotash!!!

THAT, I can guarantee!

This salad is loaded with veggies and fresh herbs and will be the perfect accompaniment to any backyard barbeque or mexican fiesta you may attend this summer.

Cinco de Mayo anyone?!?

All I could think about when making this today was how scrumptious this would be with fish tacos and an ice cold Corona Light. So much so, I might re-arrange this week’s dinner menu and make a pit stop by the docks on the way home tomorrow evening and grab the fresh catch of the day!

It makes me drool just thinking about it.

Another great thing about this recipe is that it is incredibly easy to make and will feed the masses.

I used fresh silver queen corn that was was still on the husk (b/c it would be blasphemous if I didn’t); however, I also had to throw in some frozen as well b/c the ears that I had were just too small. Feel free to use frozen corn entirely if that is easier for you!

Also, the longer this sits the better it gets, so make it a day or two ahead of time if you are planning to take it to a party!
