Simple Succotash


2 cups fresh beans-green or romano

4 ears of corn, kernels cut off

1 small avocado, peeled, pitted and diced into chunks

2 large tomatoes, diced

1/4 cup red onion, minced

2 T. fresh herbs-basil, savory, parsley-anything you’ve got

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

3 T sherry vinegar-red wine vinegar will work, too

salt and pepper to taste


Put on a pot of salted water and bring to a boil.

Cut the beans into 1″ long segments.

While waiting for the water to boil, cut all the other vegetables and put them in a large bowl.

Cook the beans until just tender (leave some crunch!) and then drain and cool in a bowl of ice water. Drain and add to the other veggies.

Pour the olive oil and vinegar over the veggies, and season to taste.
