DIRECTIONS

  • Equipment: Grill pan, Bundt pan, Large mixing bowl, Medium bowl and whisk.
  • Preheat a stovetop grill or outdoor grill over medium high heat. Grill the corn on all sides until charred and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from grill and let cool slightly. Place the corn with one end standing on the top of a bundt pan, then cut kernels off of the cobs. Place corn in a large bowl and add cooked pasta, scallions, jalapeno, black beans, 1/2 cup queso fresco, chopped red pepper, avocado, cilantro, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • To make dressing, in a medium bowl, whisk salsa, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon chili powder, honey, olive oil and salt until well combined. Pour dressing over pasta salad and stir to combine. Plate salad and top with tortilla strips, crumbled queso fresco, pinch chili powder, cilantro sprig and a lime wedge.
