I made another yummy salad for lunch two weeks ago while my sister was visiting. This pasta salad is simple, filling, and very tasty! We absolutely loved it.
1/2 pound small dried pasta, cooked al dente
1 bunch asparagus
1 pound cooked shrimp
1 avocado, peeled and diced
1 large tomato, diced
1/4 cup shredded onion
1 cup mayonnaise
Juice of 1/2 lime
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
salt and pepper
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1. Cook the asparagus in simmering water covered for 3 to 5 minutes. Cool under cold running water and drain. Cut asparagus into 1-inch pieces on an angle and add to a bowl.
2. Add the cooked pasta, shrimp, avocado, tomato and onion. Mix to combine.
3. To make the dressing: Place all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.
4. Add the dressing to the salad and mix to combine. Season salad with salt and pepper, to your taste and toss again.
