Corn-Tomato Sauté

I needed a quick and easy side dish to take to a cookout. Summer produce is abundant now and I wanted a fresh, colorful side. Tomatoes and corn pair beautifully, and feta adds a salty tang. For a bit of richness, I added some chopped avocado. Fresh lime juice is the perfect accent. Enjoy!

Corn-Tomato Sauté
2 ears corn, kernels cut from cob
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tsp. olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 avocado, chopped
1/2 cup crumbled feta
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
Juice from 2 limes
Salt and pepper

1. Sauté corn, tomatoes, and garlic in hot oil for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in avocado and next 3 ingredients. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
