Simply Fresh

That little tab at the top of my blog, the one that says Recipes, yeah that one, I haven't updated it in...forever! That doesn't mean we're not still trying new recipes at the Maxwell House, it just means I haven't been documenting them or taking photos of them. However, this ridiculously easy recipe is just so darn good that I had to share.

I think I've made this almost every week since I first discovered it, I like it that much! It just tastes so fresh that I can't get enough of it!

Lemon, Corn & Zucchini

1 small zucchini, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced

1/3 cup chopped onion

1/4 teaspoon dill weed

1 tablespoon butter

1 (15.25 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained

2 teaspoons lemon juice

In a skillet, saute the zucchini, onion and dill in butter until onion is tender. Add corn and lemon juice; cook and stir until heated through.

The only alterations I made to this dish were that I used 3 ears of fresh corn, because really, who wants to use canned corn when you get good, sweet fresh corn?! And the first time I made this I only had green onions in the house, so that's what I used, and it turned out so well that I always use them now. For just a little something special, I also added a little freshly grated parmesan at the end. Pecorino Romano works great also, as that's all I had on hand last night.

Looks yummy. I'm always looking for easy side dishes that aren't your typical green beans, peas, etc. Thanks!
