I love the added unique ingredients of this dish. Add some sliced grilled chicken and you have a meal in a bowl.

Yield: 6–8 servings


1 box rotini, cooked according to package directions

¾ cup mayonnaise

¼ cup vinegar

Salt to taste

Black pepper to taste

2 teaspoons parsley

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 15-oz. can corn, drained

2 teaspoons oil

½ pint cherry tomatoes, halved

½ purple onion, minced

1 15-oz. can red beans, drained


In a jar, mix mayonnaise, vinegar, and spices.

Toss corn with the oil and spread on a baking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes or until roasted.

In a large salad bowl, combine all ingredients.

Serve cool or at room temperature.
