Parmesan Zucchini Corn Salad

This Thanksgiving I decided it was time to contribute a dish for the passing! I knew there would be plenty of savory, hearty dishes at the table including mashed potatoes, green been casserole, gravy, and pies galore! I wanted to make sure there would be something GREEN on the table this year (okay and a little yellow, too! no packer pun intended). Everyone needs green in their day, even on Thanksgiving! It always makes my plate feel a little more balanced, and my tummy a little less puffy after the meal. A win-win! I took this one into my own hands. Sure enough, it was a hit not just for my belly, but the fam loved it too.

This recipe is simple, flavorful, and takes little time. It would make a perfect dish for any potluck, a Monday evening, or let’s say, Thanksgiving? πŸ™‚

4 large Zuccini (6-7 small)
1 cup corn (frozen or off the cob)

1/4 tspn dried basil
