Though fall is approaching, the fields are still alive and gorgeous with summer produce. We’re reveling especially in sweet corn and cherry tomatoes in this gourmet dish. Sautéed with garlic and scallions, they make a simply delicious side for juicy, seared steaks and roasted potatoes. To balance the richness of the steaks, we’re also serving crème fraîche—a delicately flavored, French version of sour cream—infused with parsley and lemon juice. Let’s celebrate summer while the sun shines, chefs!

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the potatoes lengthwise. Remove and discard the husks and silks of the corn. Cut the corn kernels off the cobs; discard the cobs. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Peel and mince the garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash until it resembles a paste (or use a zester). Halve the tomatoes. Pick the basil leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Finely chop the parsley leaves and stems. Quarter and deseed the lemon.
