This corn and zucchini Saute is a great side dish for summer, well really anytime, and the flavors are also great.  Its a simple, quick and versatile enough to be served warm or cold.  I am calling it a summer side because it is made with all my favorite summer garden veggies: Corn, Zucchini, tomato, peppers, green onion and parsley  

Corn and Zucchini Summer Side  I found this recipe in a favorite cookbook of mine and modified it a bit to my liking.  I hope you’ll give this flavorful corn and zucchini side dish a try.  This was a quick dish so its a quick post! I served mine warm with a pulled pork roast sandwich with bbq sauce.

Happy cooking and enjoy!
