Can you guess what my favorite summer activity is? I'll give you a hint: it's an outdoor activity to be enjoyed with family. It includes a blanket to sit on and a basket filled with snacks or a whole meal to share with the people I love the most. If you guessed picnic, you're right! And if you like picnics as much as I do, then I know you'll love this fresh salad with ham, corn and jalapeño. It's perfect for a picnic at the park or beach.

Ingredients

  • 8 ozs pasta, elbows or shells
  • 10 slices ham, in small squares
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and shredded
  • 1 small can corn
  • 1/4 white onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 to 3 pickled jalapeños, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of the jalapeño pickling juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 cup Oaxaca cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup of lettuce, washed and finely chopped

Directions

  • 1
    Cook the pasta in boiling water at high heat until it's finished cooking. Strain the pasta and rinse with cold water.
  • 2
    Mix the pasta with all the ingredients (except the lettuce) in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 3
    Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Add the lettuce just before serving. Enjoy!

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    This recipe can be prepared a day in advance, but without the lettuce. Add the chopped lettuce right before serving.
