Avocado Pasta Salad

SuzFleeg

"The richness of the avocado makes this dish taste amazing. Feel free to add more or less olive oil for your preferred consistency. For best results refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. Enjoy and feel guilt-free (unless you eat the whole bowl, which might just happen). It is easy to tweak this recipe to anything you like; add cooked chicken, or stir in some tuna, add some more veggies, or take some out that you don't like or have on hand."

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook corkscrew-shaped pasta in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain and cool.
  2. Mix pasta, tomatoes, apple, carrot, celery, peas, red bell pepper, black olives, and red onion together in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk avocado, olive oil, lime juice, dill, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder together in a separate bowl until smooth; stir into pasta salad to coat; garnish with Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley.

a nice change from remade pasta salad dressing and a great way to use up a bag of avacados. Really enjoyed this even w/o dill

Most helpful critical review

I love avocados so I really should have liked this recipe. Sadly i did not. I felt that it was really bland and had little to no flavor at all. I won't be making this again.

I added 2 tsp. sugar because it seemed a little bitter. The salad was better the second day after marinating. It had a good, unique taste, and it was a fun variation on a pasta salad. It kept ...
