"Sheila Lushkins, co founder of the Silver Palate empire, gives us a bright variation on an old theme with this unusual succotash, which makes wonderful use of the fresh lima beans that come to market in late summer. If you can't wait, frozen limas, quickly cooked, are a fine substitute." Saveur Magazine, August 2008.
