Sautéed Summer Sweet Corn and Zucchini

  Sauteed Summer Corn Zucchini


There’s nothing like fresh sweet corn in the summer, especially from a local farm. While eating corn straight from the cob with melted butter is probably the most traditional method, it’s nice to add a few other ingredients to perk things up. Sweet corn pairs nicely with summer’s other abundant garden vegetable – zucchini.  Fresh herbs add great flavor and the jalapeno gives it a nice kick, add a few jalapeno seeds for extra heat.
