Corn-Tomato Sauté

This recipe is totally made up. I took inventory of the vegetables in the fridge and on the windowsill, and this was the result. It was a great complement to this dish. The fresh flavors worked perfectly together. Black beans would be a great addition. If you wanted to make it a main dish, add sliced grilled steak or chicken. Enjoy!

Corn-Tomato Sauté
1 onion, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
Olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
3 ears corn, kernels cut off
Salt and pepper
2 to 3 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chile powder
Juice from 1 lime
1 avocado, cut into cubes
1/4 cup feta
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

1. Sauté onion and bell pepper in hot oil for 5 to 10 minutes or until vegetables begin to soften. Add in garlic, and cook 1 minute. Add in corn, and season with salt and pepper. Stir in tomatoes and next 3 ingredients. Cook for 5 more minutes or until thoroughly heated. Remove from heat, and stir in avocado and remaining ingredients.
