Summer Squash and Corn Saute Recipe

Summer Squash and Corn Saute Recipe

Here’s a summer harvest dish that bursts with the flavors of August gardens.

Here’s a summer harvest dish that bursts with the flavors of August gardens. Fresh corn kernels are a must if you want to get the full impact of the fresh flavors. This is great with tortilla specialties.

INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 tablespoons light olive oil
1 large green or red bell pepper, cut into short strips
2 medium yellow summer squash, halved lengthwise and sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 to 1 1/2 cups uncooked corn kernels (from 1 to 2 ears)
2 medium firm tomatoes, diced
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

1. Heat the oil in a wide skillet. Add the bell pepper and saute over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Add the squash and corn and continiue to saute, stirring frequently, until all the vegetables are tender-crisp to your liking.

2. Add the tomatoes and continue to saute briefly, just until they have lost their raw quality. Season with salt and pepper, and serve.

That looks really wonderful - light, delicious, and (almost as important!) easy to make. Of course, anything with saffron catches my eye - what a wonderful taste and wonderful color.
