Summer Squash and Georgia Pecan Sauté

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup Georgia pecan halves
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 small yellow summer squash, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 4 small zucchini, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cored, seeded and cut into thin matchstick slices
  • 1 large green bell pepper, cored, seeded and cut into thin matchstick slices
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh oregano, optional
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

In large frying pan over medium-high heat, place 1 tablespoon of olive oil and when hot add pecan halves. Stir to coat, and let toast for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly, or until nuts are a deep rich brown. Remove from the heat, place pecans on paper towels to drain. Set aside.

Place pan over medium heat and place remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in the pan. When hot, add the onion and garlic and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring constantly, until onion slices soften. Add squash, zucchini, and pepper slices; stirring constantly, sauté vegetables until tender, approximately 5 to 7 minutes.

Remove pan from heat and season with lemon juice, oregano and salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the reserved toasted pecans and serve with grilled pork, fish or chicken.
