Fusilli pasta is fancied up with delicious pieces of smoked salmon and cucumber, which can be made in no time! I like to spice mine up with a dash of cayenne pepper.

Ingredients

  • 11 ounces multi-colored fusilli pasta

  • 1 small carrot, grated

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • ½ cup diced cucumber

  • ½ cup diced celery

  • 8 ounces smoked salmon, cut into 3/4 inch pieces

  • cup mayonnaise

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 pinch ground black pepper

  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper (Optional)

Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Stir in the fusilli; return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well and rinse with cold water. Transfer cooled pasta to a large bowl.

  2. Toss the carrot, onion, cucumber, celery, and salmon with the pasta; mix well.

  3. Combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl; mix well. Pour sauce over pasta mixture. Mix well to coat evenly.
