Sautéed Corn with Tomatoes, Feta and Basil is the perfect side dish with plenty of savory flavors!


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 ears of corn kernels cut from cobs (about 4 cups)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 ounces cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil sliced into small pieces
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat oil until it starts to shimmer. Add corn and salt. Cook, without stirring, until corn begins to brown on bottom, about 3 minutes. Stir and continue to cook, stirring once or twice until corn is slightly spotty brown all over, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Transfer corn to a large bowl. Stir in tomatoes, feta, basil, lemon juice and pepper. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve cold.
