Summer Squash Medley

One of my favorite side dishes is this simple dish of sauteed onions, zucchini and yellow squash.  It pairs beautifully with any kind of grilled or roasted meat and simply cooked fish.  It is quick and easy to make and simply highlights the freshness of the ingredients.  I like to simply season this dish with a pinch of sugar, salt, and freshly ground pepper.

Summer Squash Medley
Makes 2-3 Servings

1/2 tablespoon butter
1/2 tablespoon vegetable or canola oil
1/2 sweet onion, diced
1 zucchini, cut in half moons
1 yellow squash, cut in half moons
pinch of sugar (preferably turbinado or demerara)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

In a skillet melt butter in oil over medium heat and saute onion for a couple of minutes or until just starting to become tender.  Add the squash and sprinkle with the sugar, salt and pepper and saute until squash is tender and just starting to brown in spots.
