Ingredients

  • • 1 package 375g or about 1 lb tri-colored Fusilli pasta, cooked according to package directions, rinsed, drained and set aside
  • • 2 tomatoes seeded and chopped
  • • 1 ½ cups corn
  • • 1 red pepper chopped
  • • 2 green onions chopped
  • • 1 19oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • • 2 cups finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese

For the Dressing

  • • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • • 2 cloves of garlic finely minced

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl combine the ingredients of the dressing. I like to use a whisk to make sure everything is well combined.
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients and gently combine using a large spoon.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap and set in the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes. Keep in mind that the longer this chills, the better the taste. I like to make this the night before and let it chill overnight.
  4. Enjoy!
