Three Sisters Succotash

Updated: May 11, 2020

The "three sisters" are corn, beans, and squash (like zucchini). Native Americans planted them together in the garden because they help each other grow.

I made this recipe yesterday for a cooking segment for Recipe for Success Foundation’s Fifth Annual Earth Day Celebration.

Me, along with a few other local chefs were each assigned different vegetables and were asked to create a recipe with the vegetables.



(2) Zucchini, Small Dice

3-4 Ears of Corn, taken off the cob, boiled

1 pound of Green Beans, blanched, sliced in half

(1) Red Pepper, Diced

½ Red Onion, Diced

(1) Bunch of Fresh Cilantro, Chopped

1 Jalapeño, Diced

1 Bunch of Green Onions, Chopped

½ Teaspoon Ground Coriander

Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette

¼ cup Lime Juice

2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 Cloves of Fresh Garlic, Minced

Kosher Salt



1. In a large mixing bowl, mix together zucchini, corn, green beans, red pepper, red onion, cilantro, jalapeño, green onions and coriander.

2. For the Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette, whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.

3. Pour dressing over salad with desired amount of cilantro lime vinaigrette.
