Nice variation on this classic dish. The tomatoes and onions added both flavor and liquid and helped keep the lima beans and corn moist. I omitted the butter and used just enough olive oil to saute the onions.

Nice and refreshing change to succotash. My BF made this for supper using frozen corn and lima beans, canned diced tomatoes and less than 1 tablespoon of olive oil instead of butter. The tomato and onions made a pretty and tasty dish even prettier and tastier. Thanks very much for a new and easy side dish!

This was a nice easy way to dress up lima beans. I used canned lima beans and halved the recipe since there is just two of us. Thanks
