    A slightly different pasta salad, feel free to double it for potlucks and picnics. I particularly like to use Wacky Mac or tri-color pasta for this!

    My Private Note


    Serves: 4-6



    Units: US | Metric


    • 8 ounces shell pasta, cooked tender (1 dry cup or just a teensy bit less so to not overpower the edamame)
    • 1 1/2 cups shelled edamame (if using fresh or frozen, or 1 15-oz can edamame rinsed and drained )
    • 1/2 cup frozen corn
    • 1 (15 1/2 ounce) can black beans



    1. 1
      Cook the pasta according to package directions, preferably tender. When it's done cooking, rinse with cold water and pour in a large serving bowl or container.
    2. 2
      Rinse and drain the black beans and edamame.
    3. 3
      Thaw the corn (and edamame).
    4. 4
      Mix the corn, edamame, and black beans together with the pasta.
    5. 5
      Make the dressing by putting all the dressing ingredients in a blender (except the sesame seeds) and pulse until fully mixed.
    6. 6
      Stir in the sesame seeds.
    7. 7
      Pour the completed dressing over the pasta, and let chill for about 45 minutes-1 hour then serve. Lasts about 4-5 days fresh and great for brown-bagging lunch; and if your workplace lacks a fridge, don't fear due to the lack of dairy products!

      Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm! What a great salad! So vey simple and so good. I couldn't bring myself to measure a full cup of olive oil, so I just used a half. And actually next time I think I'll cut it down to a quarter cup. The tahini dressing is mild, so everyone will enjoy it. It's such a pretty salad too. I used whole wheat penne pasta (because that's what I had) but I think shells or bowties would be prettier. Next time I'm going to make it in a red bowl because I think it would be just stunning. Ok, back to enjoying now...
