Serves 4 (serving size: about 1 cup)

We’re ready for the glories of summer produce, but since it’s not quite the season, frozen vegetables and year-round grape tomatoes do the job wonderfully. Edamame replaces lima beans in traditional succotash for a boost of plant-powered protein. Feta adds a hit of salty tang, while fresh herbs lend an earthy flavor. This vibrant, vegetarian main comes together in a tasty 20-minute snap—though it also holds up well when prepared the night before. Brimming with 7 grams of fiber per serving and an array of colors and textures, this dish is perfect for a light yet satisfying meal.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cups frozen shelled edamame, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • 1 ounce feta cheese, crumbled (about 1/4 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
