Test Kitchen Tip

This salad can be mixed together ahead, but wait to add the avocado until just before serving so it doesn’t turn brown.


Cook pasta in a pot of boiling salted water according to package directions; drain. Toss pasta with corn, olives, bell peppers, scallions, and garlic.

Whisk together oil, lime juice, vinegar, oregano, cumin, coriander, and cayenne and toss with salad; season with salt and black pepper. Stir in avocados just before serving.
