Recipe Corner: Corn and Zucchini Side Salad

Here is an delicious simple side to add to your weekend BBQ.  I know everyone has been saying they have zucchini coming out of their ears, so I hope this helps you use some of it.  If you need more ideas, swing by Finding Joy in My Kitchen.  SnoWhite has some wonderful ideas.  And don't forget to visit Crazy Daisy's Tuesday's Taste Party for more yummy recipes.   Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 2 cups chopped zucchini
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Directions
  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Reserve 1 tablespoon of drippings. Drain bacon, chop, and set aside.
  2. Heat the bacon drippings in the skillet over medium heat. Saute the zucchini, corn, and onion until tender but still crisp, about 10 minutes. Season with pepper. Spoon vegetables into a bowl, and sprinkle with chopped bacon and shredded cheese.
