Hi. It’s Lois at Recipe Idea Shop, telling you about a delightful vegan, gluten free pasta salad, Black Bean Corn Pasta Salad, that I made recently for Quaker potluck. It was nearly gone after the lunch; obviously, everyone liked it.
It was such a good combination. I do like black beans and corn together. The dressing really made the dish. It could easily be used to any kind of bean or chickpea salad. I added some flatleaf parsley from my garden. I love being able to just step out my door and get fresh herbs. Only the early herbs—parsley, cilantro and oregano—are ready to cut. I’m not a big fan of dried parsley. (It tastes like grass to me…how do I know what grass tastes like? I don’t know, but I must have tried it as a kid.) But I do like fresh parsley (either kind).
I used a brown rice pasta, which made it gluten free. My favorite gluten free pasta is the gluten free pasta by Bionaturae (affiliate link). The one I have on hand is made with rice, potato and soy. It takes a little longer to cook it than wheat pasta, but it can be cooked al dente and it has a terrific flavor.
This salad is super easy to make. When you give it a try, be sure to comment how you like it and if you made any changes to it!
