SUMMER CORN WITH TOMATOES, ONION, AND BASIL

IMG_8909I am so happy that corn has arrived at the farmers market. Here is a delicious recipe for sweet corn you will be making all summer long. A simple sauté slightly softens the corn and onion, and the tomatoes and basil give it a fresh burst of flavor. Serve it slightly warm or at room temperature.
