Golden Delicious Summer Side Dish

Yellow. The most glorious color of them all. Sunshiny, bright, cheery, warm and comforting. Yellow.

IMG_6297This summer side dish was inspired by all things yellow I found at the farmer’s market.


Corn, zucchini, onion and dried lemon peel. Yellow, yellow, yellow, and yellow!


Hope this brightens up your day, and your taste buds!

Golden Delicious Summer Side Dish

Serves 2

1/2 cup of farro, uncooked

1/2 of a yellow zucchini, chopped

1 small yellow onion, chopped

1 ear of corn, raw, cut off the cob

1 tbsp fresh basil, chopped

1/2 tbsp dried lemon peel

1/2 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp garlic, minced

In order to make this dish, start by cooking the farro to package directions.

While the farro is cooking, heat a skillet with olive oil to medium heat and add in the zucchini, onions and garlic. Stir mixture occasionally for 10-12 minutes, or until veggies are tender.

When the veggies are tender, turn off heat and mix in basil and dried lemon peel.

As soon as the farro is done cooking, combine with the ear of corn in a medium mixing bowl. Then add in the zucchini mixture and stir. Eat while warm! Enjoy!

Yellow is a girl’s best friend,
