Sautéed Zucchini and Corn with Chives
This side dish is a quick and easy way to incorporate two of summer's favorite vegetables into any meal.
Why This Recipe Works
There’s always a bumper crop of zucchini in the summer and a shortage of good zucchini recipes. But our Sautéed Zucchini and Corn with Chives recipe is a seasonal favorite and a real keeper. It’s quick dish that doesn’t turn watery—the real problem with cooking zucchini. We start by shredding the zucchini using the large holes of a box grater or the shredding disk of a food processor. Then we squeezed the grated zucchini to remove excess liquid. Cooking the zucchini in butter quickly over high heat helped to preserve its texture and delicate flavor. We combined the zucchini with fresh corn and chives for flavor and textural contrast.
