Sauteed Summer Corn and Zucchini

With summer comes a ton of fresh produce. This is the time of year that I live for. Fresh fruit that actually tastes good. Fresh veggies readily available that aren’t just brassicas and root veggies and are local.

If you’re lucky enough to have a home garden (I’m counting down the years until it can happen for me), you might end up yielding a ton of zucchini or corn or perhaps BOTH! If you do, you’re going to be looking for a ton of new recipes for them. This sauteed summer corn and zucchini side dish is perfect.

If you’re like me, and you just buy corn and zucchini on a regular basis, this is going to be a great side dish for you as well. It’s simple, and it’s healthy. YUM

 

I actually cut my first tooth on corn when I was a baby. I loved corn then, and I still love it now. Zucchini took a lot longer for me to like, but I love it now, too.

Thanks to the folks at All Recipes for this simple and delicious recipe!
