This is a simple little side dish that my kids absolutely adore and hey, any vegetable dish that I can get my kids to ask for is most definitely worth sharing, right? It can be thrown together out of a few simple ingredients and is ready in minutes, yet adds quite a bit of flavor to any plate.
I generally make this using frozen ingredients I always have close at hand, but there is absolutely no reason that it could not (and indeed should not) be made with fresh ingredients if you have them. My kids, being of a generation quite content to eat frozen snacks heated from a box in the microwave don’t mind that I use less than perfect ingredients and it’s great in a pinch, but I’d probably opt for fresh if company was coming.
Regardless of the previous temperature of the ingredients, this is a very tasty dish and works very well with chicken, pork or fish. It plays well with others and has been seen dancing with green beans, peas and broccoli a time or two. Give it a try, I think you’ll like it!
(Note: I probably would have called it a corn relish on my own, but you try to get a nine and eleven year old to eat something called corn relish! That’s way too far out of their comfort zone, so I dubbed it by what I tossed in the pan and they seemed happy enough.)

What I would have done Differently had I thought of it at the time:
This dish can be changed up in so many ways that listing all of them here would be a bit much. Add whatever you like, remove what you don’t. It’s quick, it’s mostly healthy and I can get my kids to eat a half-cup each. I can’t ask any more from it than that.
