|My Mom and I|
About a month before the wedding I came home after work to find my mom had two pasta salads in the fridge for me to taste. I have no recollection of one, but the other I completely fell in love with. This pasta salad will never get confused with one that originated from a box. Fresh basil, olives, and roasted corn give this salad bold flavor. She made this one for my wedding and I have been enjoying the recipe ever since.
My thoughtful Mother packed up some leftovers and put them into an ice chest and sent them with us as we left on a road trip for our honeymoon. We had planned on eating out on our honeymoon (actually I am pretty sure we didn't "plan" anything for food), and we ate at some great restaurants that week. But when driving through the middle of nowhere eating pasta salad and other wedding food was much preferred to the fast food joints that were our only other option. Thanks Mom!
I always try to post the source for my recipes but I don't know for sure where this one came form. It is strikingly similar to this one on Epicurious. I think my mom just made a few additions to make it more flavorful.
Saute corn in fry pan about 3 minutes.
Mix the corn , dressing, and the rest of the ingredients and serve. This can be made the day before, but add a little more oil & vinegar before serving. Serves 6-8
