I do a lot of cooking for the Hospitality team at my church and I was trying to mix things up and create something new!! This Pasta Salad was a HUGE hit at the event I took it to!! So, don't knock it til you try it!!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
If you're a fan of avocados, then you're going to love this recipe! The spices, textures and ingredients blend really well. Break with a traditional pasta salad and serve this at your next cookout. It's delish!

Ingredients

1/2 c
freshly chopped cilantro
4
limes, juiced
2 large
haas avocados (diced)
4 medium
roma tomatoes (seeded & diced)
1 medium
red onion (minced)
4-5 clove
freshly minced garlic
1 can(s)
black beans (drained & rinsed)
1 can(s)
whole kernel corn (yellow or white) drained well
8 oz
pepper jack cheese (cubed in small pieces)
1 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
1 box
whole wheat rotini pasta (boiled, drained, & rinsed in cold water)
2 or 3 pinch
sea salt to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a Large Bowl, (preferably one with a lid), combine cilantro, lime juice, & diced avocado. Stir until all the avocado has been coated with some of the lime juice (this will prevent the avocado from browning!). Add all other ingredients and stir to combine! Season with Sea Salt to taste. Ground Red pepper can also be added for a spicier flavor. Chill and serve. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days.
