In an effort to use up all this summer zucchini in abundance here, I decided to make the easiest side dish ever, dressing it up with a bit of basil, oregano and thyme, a squeeze of lime juice and fresh cilantro leaves.

I also sprinkled on some freshly shaved Parm and called it a day. It’s unbelievably simple yet full of fun flavors to dress up any meal. Best of all, you can use any kind of corn you have on hand – frozen, canned or roasted!
