Reviews for Asian Corn Succotash
"Made this dish for Easter with some small variations, mostly by using black beans instead of red onion. We loved it! My sister took some about a quarter of it, she enjoyed it so much. Very easy to put together - a keeper!"
"I made this for a gathering, so I took the time to boil fresh sweet corn and then slice it off the cobs. It was also somewhat time-consuming of course to shell the edamame after cooking it... However, this was delicious and very fresh-tasting with the fresh corn, it also is nice and colourful as a side dish."
"This is a delicious and very easy recipe. I used canned corn -- the crisp and sweet variety -- and the steam-in-bag edamame, which made it even easier. I don't care for raw onion in salads, so I left it out -- just added a little dried minced onion to the dressing. I will definitely make this again!"
"Enjoyed by everyone at potluck dinner!"
