Ingredients

  • 1 bag of GF pasta (227g)
  • 2 cobs of corn or 1 can
  • 4 large jalapeño
  • 1/2 cup of cilantro and green onions
  • 10 oz of crumbled feta cheese

First, put a pot of lightly salted water on and cook the pasta on the lower side of the package recommendations. It’ll hold up better in the salad if it’s cooked the 9 minutes if the package says 9-11.

Then, boil the corn for about 6 minutes. Then, char on the BBQ until about 1/4 of the corn is blackened. If you’re using a can, you can torch it or toss it under the broiler for about 3-7 minutes until it has some colour.

For the dressing, chop and deseed the jalapeños, and dice the green onions, garlic and cilantro. Mix in a bowl with the lime juice and spices. Double the dressing (mayo, lime juice and spices) if you’re looking for a creamier salad.

In a large bowl, add the pasta and feta cheese and mix well. Done!

It’ll keep in the fridge for about 5-6 days – pack it up in an airtight container and you’ll be all set. It’s delicious cold (I wouldn’t necessarily eat it hot, yet when it’s freshly made it’s warm/room temp) and makes a great lunch.
