Weight Watchers Avocado and Tomato Pasta Salad

"I love the flavour of guacamole so I came up with this simple, quick recipe for a pasta salad incorporating the same flavours. You can add a variety of other ingredients, cooked chicken would work particularly well. Serves 2 as a main dish or 4 as a side dish."

directions

  • First, cook the pasta.
  • Meanwhile, put the mayonnaise and lime juice in a large bowl and stir.
  • Chop the baby plum tomatoes and avocado and add to the bowl. Finely dice and add the red onion. You may also like to add some cooked chicken.
  • When the pasta is cooked, drain it, then pour cold water over it for a few minutes to cool it quickly. Drain it again and add it to the bowl.
  • Finely chop as much fresh coriander as you like and sprinkle it over the top.
  • Season with salt if desired and stir the pasta salad thoroughly to mix all the ingredients together. If you are using properly ripe avocadoes, stirring the mixture should blend some of the avocado flesh into the dressing to develop the flavour.
  • Serve and enjoy!

    Made this for dinner tonight and it was yummy! I substituted cherry tomatoes for plum tomatoes and green scallions for the red onion. Came out great and hubby loved it, will make again. Perfect for summer.

    Very nice salad! Easy. I omitted the red onion and added a dash of black pepper. I did not add the chicken but can see that would be good also. Thank you Shuzbud for posting.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I am a primary school teacher living in Bristol, England. At the moment I teach Kindergarten, known here as Reception. I really love my job but it doesn't leave much time for hobbies! I enjoy cooking for friends and aim to try new recipes as often as possible! My signature dish has to be White Chocolate Blondies, as it is my most requested sweet treat, and I definitely have a sweet tooth! Update- 5-5-09: Somebody was very thoughtful and gave me the gift of a premium membership. I can honestly say it made me feel so good! If you're out there, THANK YOU so much! I can't quite believe the generosity... <img src="http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a254/Sharon123/Copyoftag300-banner.jpg" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Recipezaar%20Album/iplaytagin.jpg"> <img src="http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics2/food/PRMRcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/holidaybadge.gif" border="0" alt="Photobucket"X> <img src="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Banners/holidayprmr2.jpg"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg"> <img src="http://img29.imageshack.us/img29/7505/mybanner4a394ee84d5f0.jpg" > <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/Permanent%20Banners/cc-banner-7-09.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg">
