Description

This fresh and delicious avocado pasta salad is the perfect pot luck recipe, meal prep recipe, or to make as a side dish for your next BBQ.


Ingredients

Scale

For the Salad:

3 cups cooked pasta of choice, I used Fusilli 

1 cup grilled corn on the cob

1 tbsp umami spice (optional)

½ cup fresh chopped cilantro 

¼ cup chopped fresh green onion

1 large Mission Produce avocado, cut into chunks

Dressing:

3 tbsp. Olive oil

Juice of one large lemon

2 tbsp. Honey

2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp red pepper flakes

1 tsp black pepper


Instructions

Prepare the salad by slowly adding/layering all the ingredients to a large bowl.  

To make the dressing, simply add all the ingredients to a medium bowl and mix together till combined. 

Serve with your desired dressing and mix till combined.


Notes

If you’re making the salad in advance, mix together all the ingredients apart from the avocados.  Add those last to ensure ripeness and freshness.  Same goes for meal prepping and lunches.
