Succotash - Dee Dee's

Diane Hopson Smith


I've always loved Succotash and this recipe has to be the very best! I found this recipe in Southern Livings Ultimate Christmas Cookbook (Special edition presented exelusively by Dillards)page 99. It suggests paring this dish with ham. I love it with rice and fried salmon patties to name a few. This dish is a wonderful side dish for lots of meals. And, very tasty!

IF, you have any leftovers, this is a great soup starter!
