Fresh Corn Sauté with Red Pepper and Onions

Make the most of fresh summer corn with this colorful, quick and delicious side dish.

One of my favorite parts of summer is having lots and lots of deliciously sweet fresh corn. I grew up in Indiana, so it’s pretty much destiny that I love it so much.

This side dish was one of the first recipes I bookmarked in the latest issue of Cooking Light. It’s perfect for summer – fresh, simple and not at all time consuming.

Fresh Corn Sauté with Red Pepper and Onions

I used corn and green onions that I picked up from the Farmer’s Market that morning. So fresh!

I served this alongside Pork Medallions with Scallions and Magic Green Sauce from the same issue as my in-laws’ birthday dinner. It was a big hit!

This recipe is easily made vegan by substituting the butter for a non-dairy variety. Delicious!
