You guys, it's spring!! Time for picnics and just plain enjoying the outdoors! For spring, I love love pasta salads.
So when Hidden Valley® Ranch and Walmart reached out to work together, I knew I wanted to make a pasta salad with Hidden Valley's new Sriracha Ranch dressing…so perfect, right?
I bought all of my ingredients at Walmart, it's a great place to get ingredients to make delicious meals.
First, grill two ears of corn. I love grilled corn in pasta salad!
Cut up your red pepper.
Dice it up for the salad.
Love love, grape tomatoes…quarter these up for the salad.
Dice up half of a cucumber.
After the corn is grilled, cut off the kernels for the salad.
Set up all of your ingredients.
Including the Hidden Valley Ranch Sriracha dressing, one of their new dressings they just launched. It tastes like the ranch dressing you know and love and at the end, you get a kick with the sriracha!
Check out their other new Ranch dressings: Buffalo, Honey BBQ and Cilantro Lime, all available at Walmart!
Combine the corn, red pepper, onion and cucumber in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the pasta too.
Then, add the Hidden Valley Ranch Sriracha dressing.
Mix it together, add the tomatoes and mix again. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. After refrigerating, remove the pasta and mix it again. You might need to add more dressing at this point.
Serve the pasta salad with sliced green onions, sesame seeds and lime wedges. This is the perfect salad for a picnic, a potluck or a great side for a weekend meal. You will LOVE it, I just know it!
