Quick Corn Saute

A simple, really simple side dish is what I turn to on those never ending hectic days.  A simple side dish that bursts with flavor, is it possible?  Yes. Yes. Yes.

A quick corn saute loaded with celery, carrots, garlic and cilantro provide not only flavor, but add brightness to your table. My kids are visual eaters, so I try to add flavor/color to every meal.

This side dish was a winner.  Quick, tasty and as my 6yr put it “so pretty!”  Enjoy!
