Warm Zucchini & Corn Salad

Zucchini is one of my favorite summer vegetables. It is ALWAYS in my fridge this time of year because it is so versatile, quick cooking, and super delicious.

You can do sooo many things with zucchini -> make zoodles, veggie lasagna, baked zucchini fries, put it in muffins, and pack it into baked goods

Like I said, versatile.

Today we’re going super simple with an easy summer salad. Zucchini is the main star of the dish, but then we’re combining it with sweet corn, mushrooms, and spinach.

If you’ve never had zucchini and corn together, you’re seriously missing out.

And what makes it even better is that it’s a one-pan dish! Everything gets sauteed in the same skillet for less clean up. You’re welcome.

It has that easy, simple, thrown together summer feel to it. If you’re looking for something quick to bring with you to a summer cookout with your fam, then this is a winner.

Warm Zucchini & Corn Salad

Servings 6 (as a side dish)


  • 3 large zucchini (diced)
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 2 cups mushrooms (sliced)
  • 2-3 cups spinach
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  • Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil to the pan, then add all of the mushrooms and saute for 3-4 minutes.
  • Next, add the corn and zucchini, season with salt, pepper, and the red pepper flakes (if you want it spicy). Stir occasionally, and let it cook for another 5-6 minutes, until the zucchini is starting to get slightly soft and cooked through.
  • Once the zucchini is cooked, turn off the heat and add the spinach. Stir it all together to combine, and this will wilt the spinach at the very end.
  • Transfer everything to a platter and serve!
