Southwest Style Pasta Salad


  • For the Dressing:
  • 1 Del Monte® Avocado, pitted and diced
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 tbsp. fresh lime juice from Del Monte® Limes
  • 1 garlic clove, minced or pressed
  • ½ tsp. fine sea salt
  • For the Salad:
  • 12 oz. chickpea rotini
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1½ cups frozen corn, thawed and drained
  • 1 Del Monte® Avocado, pitted and diced
  • 1 cup Del Monte® Bon Bon Tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cup cilantro, finely chopped
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced


In a blender combine avocado, yogurt, lime juice, garlic, and salt. Blend until very smooth, adding enough cool water to create a thick sauce-like consistency. Set aside.

Bring a large saucepan of well-salted water to a boil, and cook rotini according to package directions. Drain well, and rinse under cold running water.

In a large bowl toss together rotini, black beans, corn, avocado, tomatoes, cilantro, and green onion. Add dressing to taste and toss to coat. Taste and add more salt or lime juice if needed.

Store refrigerated for up to 5 days.
