Summer Vegetables Élégant Recipe

Summer is a time of outdoor gatherings, barbecues, and picnics, and most of us, while having plenty of recipes for main dishes, are always searching to find really good seasonal showstopper sides. The following Summer Vegetables Élégant is one such side that everybody will love and that uses up the vegetables of summer. It can be made ahead and reheated, and also made in a cast iron skillet on the grill if it isn’t convenient to heat the oven. You can adjust the heat by adding more or less jalapeño peppers – one is quite mild and suitable for even children.
If you don’t grow summer vegetables in your own garden, corn on the cob, zucchini, yellow squash, jalapenos, and red peppers are always available at farmer’s markets, roadside stands, or in grocery stores. The recipe is quick and easy and takes very little hands-on time to put together. If you’re serving a crowd, double the recipe because it will go fast.

1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 to 3 jalapeno peppers, cored, seeded, and chopped
