A quick saute keeps them crisp-tender.

A quick saute keeps them crisp-tender.

I would call this the easiest side dish you’ll ever make.  And, with great-tasting summer produce right around the corner at your local grocery store or farm stand, it’s going to taste even better.  Even my husband who is a tough critic of veggie side dishes enjoyed this one.


Veggies are ready to go into the pan.


1 tbsp good quality olive oil

3tbsp red onion, small chop

1 cup grape tomatoes

1 cup zucchini (cut them length-wise and then length-wise again; cut into 1/2-inch thick slices)

1 cup orange, red or yellow bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces

Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste



Heat olive oil in large skillet/saute pan over medium-high heat.   Add onions and sweat (no color) stirring constantly.  Add remaining veggies, season with salt and pepper and saute for 6 minutes or until veggies are crisp-tender.

4 servings

Note:  This is delicious warmed up the next morning and served over scrambled eggs.
