This time of year I love all the wonderful produce at the local farmer’s market. It is also the only time of the year when green tomatoes are available. On my last visit to the market I went a little overboard on buying green tomatoes. I love fried green tomatoes, but after making it twice in so many days, I decided I must find another way of preparing them. I also had a couple of ears of corn and I thought, why not combine the two. This is the result. It turned out delicious.
Green Tomatoes and Corn
2 or 3 green tomatoes. Diced into one inch squares.
2 ears of corn – kernels removed.
¼ cup of cilantro leaves
Salt and fresh ground pepper
2 to 3 TBS. olive oil.
In a saucepan, heat the olive oil. Sauté the tomatoes and corn, add the salt and pepper and the cilantro. Cook until the tomatoes are tender, about 8 minutes. Serve. It is that simple and it is a delicious side dish.
