Farfalle W/ Roasted Corn & Avacado Dressing

Cassie *


My family & friends love when I bring this salad to any social gathering...love Avocado's and this dressing can be seasoned to your own preference...sometimes I give it a S/W flair by adding cumin and chili power...today, I made it simple...don't be afraid to try something different...this salad is yummy, with the sweetness of the fresh roasted corn, and the feta sprinkled on the salad, gives it the right amount of saltiness!

How to Make Farfalle W/ Roasted Corn & Avacado Dressing


  • 1Cook your pasta according to instructions on package. Drain and rinse.

    While pasta is cooking, prepare corn for roasting. I left half the husks on the cob, ( you can remove completely.) then rubbed with olive oil and sprinkled with pepper and salt. Place on a grill pan and roast until kernels begin to char, then turn to get coloring on remainder of cob and corn is tender. Mine took about 15 minutes altogether. I left cool, then use my mandolin to cut from cob. Works like a charm. If don't have one, just cut corn from cob with a sharp knife.
  • 2Place corn in large bowl; along with peppers, cooled pasta, tomato, avocado and onion. Toss and set aside.
  • 3Make dressing.

    In food processor or could use a blender, add all dressing ingredients and pulse until smooth. Taste to see if needs more salt or now decide if you want to add other seasoning.
  • 4Pour dressing over pasta and toss to coat.

    Chill until ready to serve.

    When serving, I sprinkle with bacon and feta cheese crumbles....delicious!
