This pasta salad is wonderful on a hot day, and the almonds and avocado go great together!

Ingredients

Serves: 10
  1 package (1 lb.) Rotini pasta, cooked according to package, rinsed with cold water and drained
  1 can (15 1/4 oz) whole kernel corn
  1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  2 cups shredded mild or sharp cheddar cheese
  1 cup Ranch dressing
  1 cup Italian dressing
  1/2 tsp lemon juice
  2-3 large ripe avocados, seeded, peeled, and mashed with a fork

Instructions

In a large bowl, mix together pasta, corn, almonds, and cheese. Set aside. In a small bowl, mix together Ranch dressing, Italian dressing, lemon juice, and avocados with a fork until well blended. Pour over pasta mixture and toss to coat. Add tomatoes to pasta mixture and gently toss to coat. Serve. Refrigerated any leftovers in a air-tight container.
