This zucchini and corn pasta salad recipe is summer at it's finest. Zucchini, sweet corn, juicy tomatoes, basil, and pearl couscous are tossed in a simple lemon dressing for a refreshing, wholesome summer side dish. (This could easily be eaten as a vegetarian main, too!)
Everybody loves a good pasta salad, right? Especially when it's still summertime and zucchini and corn and tomatoes are at their very finest, right? I thought so.
This pasta salad is a little different – instead of penne or macaroni or bowties, we're using pearl couscous (AKA Israeli couscous! Why? Well, first of all, it's freakin' delicious. And also, because you guys love the spinach and mushroom couscous recipe AND the Italian pasta salad recipe. So I thought, "why not combine the two?" 💁♀️
All in all, this zucchini and corn pasta salad comes together in about 20 minutes. You can prep the other ingredients while the couscous is cooking. Then, add everything to a large bowl and toss with lemon juice, olive oil, basil, salt and pepper, and feta. That's it! So simple. So fresh. So good. Have I mentioned how much I love summer?
TBH, this salad has been my lunch for like 3 days straight now. I think it's going to be my new favorite thing to keep on hand for all hangry moments. I haven't brought it along to a cookout or gathering yet, but I am 100% positive that it will be a huge hit. Speaking of, you should definitely try this out on your friends and relatives and see what they think. I bet you they'll be asking for the recipe. 😉
