Summer Succotash with Bacon

Made with salty bacon, fresh tomatoes, and bright herbs, this easy succotash recipe creates a delicious summer side dish.

You’ll need:

  • 6 slices bacon, sliced
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 4 corn cobs, husked and kernels cut from the cob
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ¼ cup sliced chives
  • ¼ cup sliced basil
  • ½ cup crumbled feta
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar or lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

To make:

Cook the Bacon: In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and set it on a paper towel-lined plate. Remove excess bacon grease, leaving about 2 tablespoons in the skillet.

Cook the Vegetables: Add the green onions and corn to the skillet and cook until soft, about 3-5 minutes.

Combine Ingredients: Remove the skillet from heat and add the tomatoes, chives, basil, feta, and white wine vinegar or lemon juice. Stir in the bacon just before serving so it remains crispy. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve: This dish can be served warm or at room temperature.
