Lima Bean and Corn Salad

“The bacon and mayo make this dish special. The old Southern vegetable salad originated with leftover fresh vegetables at the height of the summer, but it's really good using frozen veggies. Makes a tasty side for any summer meal and it's very easy to cut the recipe in half if desired. Prep time does not include chill time.”

Directions

  1. Fry bacon until crisp, drain and crumble.
  2. Blanch lima beans in lightly salted boiling water about 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Blanch corn in unsalted boiling water until crisp-tender, 3-5 minutes. As vegetables complete cooking, drain in colander and rinse under cold running water to stop cooking and refresh the vegetables.
  3. Combine beans, corn, scallions, bacon, mayonnaise and vinegar. Toss to coat and add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate 2 to 4 hours for flavors to blend.
