RECIPE: Sweet Corn and Pasta Salad
Serves: 2 Time: 10-15 minutes
NOTE: All cups mentioned in the recipe denote measuring cups. Please do not confuse them with regular tea cups which are smaller in size.
- Mayonnaise, 1/2 cup
- Sour Cream, 4 tablespoons
- Fresh Coriander, 1/4 cup, chopped
- Fresh Mint, 1/4 cup, fresh
- Lemon Juice, 1 tablespoon
- Garlic, 4 cloves
- Water, 2 tablespoons
- Boiled fusilli pasta, 1/2 cup
- Sweetcorns, 1/2 cup
- Tomato, 2 large, chopped in large chunks
- Lettuce, a bunch, roughly chopped in large chunks
- Broccoli, Bell Pepper, Onion, 1/3 cup each, chopped in chunks
- Salt and Pepper, to taste
Blend mayonnaise, sour cream, coriander, mint, lemon juice, garlic, water in a food processor until you have a smooth paste and everything is combined properly. Season it with salt and pepper. Make sure the dressing is not too thin or too thick, add more mayonnaise if its thin and little water if its too thick.
In a salad bowl toss in the fusilli pasta, sweet corns, tomato, lettuce, broccoli, bell pepper, onion. Pour the dressing over them and mix everything together. Make sure the dressing covers everything and is thick enough to mask them. Season with salt and pepper. You can add a little more lemon juice too, if you wish.
You can add a little taco seasoning to the dressing to make the salad a little mexican. You can add feta cheese, avocado and any other vegetable you fancy. Tastes best when fresh.
