4 ears of sweet corn (about 2 cups of kernels)
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 medium red bell pepper, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
4 to 5 scallions, chopped
1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 Tbsp. fresh tarragon leaves, chopped (or 1 tsp. dried)
Shuck the corn and remove the silks. Steam or boil just until the kernels are tender. Cut the kernels from the cob and set aside.
Melt the butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add the red bell pepper and sauté until crisp tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the scallions and continue cooking 1 minute longer.
Add tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Continue cooking until the tomatoes are slightly softened, 2 minutes, then add the corn. Combine well, taste, adjust the seasoning as needed, then stir in the tarragon. A quick and easy side dish!
