Summer Succotash

Sometimes all you want is a cold salad, and what masquerades as a simple salad but sounds so much cooler?  A succotash, of course.  This recipe is perfect for summer, although I must warn you that if you plan on leaving some of this for leftovers, you should omit the olives, because the brine overcomes the succotash when it chills.

I had my first helping on toast, and the second alone because I simple couldn’t get enough. I still enjoy saying it too…succ-o-TASH! Selah.
