A good side dish

I've made this recipe twice. Both times it was delicious served with Chicken Enchiladas and a small salad. Both times I made 1/2 recipe using defrosted frozen corn and freeze-dried chives -- it's winter; no fresh available. Preparation directions were followed as written.

For as simple as this recipe is AWESOME!  Even my kids, who turn up their noses at zucchini...ask for 3 helpings!  I couldn't quit eating it either!  I HIGHLY recommend this one!

Excellent exept too much butter. I recomend using half the amount in evoo and other in butter or just cut way down on butter to decrease soggy greasy feel.

Excellent. We used corn on the cob and grilled it to a slight brown color.

Made a couple of changes: used 1 tbsp evoo instead of butter and Mrs. Dash original seasoning. Was so yummy and will make again for sure.

My family enjoyed this side dish. I made it as written the first time and it was too greasy. Now make it with half the butter. A nice way to use fresh veggies from the farmers market.

I used half of the butter (if that) and subbed a little olive oil. I also omitted the taco seasoning (only because I didn't have any and I didn't want the added sodium it would provide) and used frozen organic sweet corn (from Trader Joes). While I sauteed the zucchini and onion I used a dried spinach & herb mix (I bought at a Tastefully Simple party) which has spinach flakes, onion, minced green onions, dill, and garlic in it. It was delicious! This is my new favorite side, and my new side to bring to any BBQ this summer. It's good warm and cold, as we ate the leftovers for days afterwards straight from the 'fridge.

One of the best, fresh-tasting side dishes you can make in a hurry and is very attractive. Frozen corn works great!
