Corn and Seafood Pasta Salad Recipe

Some people only think of salad recipes in the summer but I like them all year around. I especially like salad recipes that can add a little tang and crunch to the heavier meals of fall and winter. This delicious Corn & Seafood Pasta Salad is perfect as a side dish or a main dish at any time of year. The veggies you add are available at any time of the year.

6. Mix well and refridgerate to allow the flavors to mix, for at least an hour. Enjoy!

I can’t wait to make this and take it to the many potlucks we enjoy during the winter months. I also love that the vegetables used won’t get mushy if there are leftovers. I hate making a big salad only to have half of it hit the trash because the veggies get slimey and gross once they are dressed. Instead, salads like this one are delicious right away and make great leftovers for lunch the next day. Yum!
