    Irmgard's Note:

    A wonderful fresh cold pasta salad for summer. Note: You will have about twice as much dressing as you will need for this recipe. Save extra for salad.

      Delicious dish for summer. The fresh corn and tomatoes realy make this dish stand out. Just be sure to dress it judiciously... too much dressing is not a good thing (learned that the hard way).

      Wonderful!! So many delightful tastes blended together, and so many wonderful textures! I also left out the spinach. The next day when dealing with leftovers, as serving I topped the individual platings with some toasted pine nuts and we loved it that way as well! It seemed to add one more dimension to this delicious multi-dimensional dish. Thanks so much for sharing!!

      What a great way to liven up couscous. The avocados and corn really make the salad. I followed the recipe but left out the spinach. I also cut back on the amount of dressing. I will be making this again. Thanks for posting.
