A beautiful and hearty pasta salad with a delicate dressing that is the perfect light touch. I made this almost exactly as posted, except I used 16 oz. fusilli, grape tomatoes, 2 cups of frozen corn kernels (fresh is not in season here), 2 cans of tuna, the juice of 2 limes, and 6 T. olive oil. I also used the feta cheese, which I sort of slivered. I also used a combination of chopped basil and parsley. The flavors blended very well together, and the lime juice was a particularly nice touch. I think, in the future, I may blend the juice and oil together first before pouring into the salad, but that's probably the only thing I'd change. The end result was a rather hearty pasta salad that was a nice change of pace. Thanks for sharing! Made for Spring PAC 2013.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the pasta until al dente. Drain and oil lightly. Let cool in a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. Toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
  3. Variation: For a salad that could appeal to more kids, use bocconcini cheese, and in the grown-up version, use feta cheese.
