#SoldInCold Southwestern Pasta Salad with Litehouse Jalapeno Ranch Dressing

I am so excited to bring you this post!  Litehouse Foods is one of my favorite brands.  Litehouse is an employee-owned company ( I love that! ) that has been creating deliciousness for over 50 years.  All their products have a quality of freshness that appeals to me.  Remember to look for them in the refrigerated produce section of your grocery store.  Did you know in addition to the dried herbs and delicious sauces that Litehouse makes dressings and dips?  Mmmmm, they are fresh and delicious!  I recently tried the Litehouse Jalapeno Ranch and fell in love.  Of course, it’s delicious on salads (you have to try it on a taco salad!).  But I decided to try it as a dressing for a pasta salad, and it is to-die-for delicious.  This dish is so pretty it is perfect to bring to an event or serve for lunch with friends, but you’ll find yourself making it for everyday family meals too.  Here’s the recipe.  I hope you’ll give it a try!

Litehouse Jalapeno Ranch dressing is a creamy combo of “cool & spicy” that combines a zesty blend of spices and just the right amount of jalapenos with our creamy Ranch dressing for a mild heat. Try it on a taco!

This Southwestern Pasta Salad with Litehouse Jalapeno Ranch dish is so pretty it is perfect to bring to an event or serve for lunch with friends, but you’ll find yourself making it for everyday family meals too.  Here’s the recipe.  I hope you’ll give it a try!

Southwestern Pasta Salad with Jalapeno Ranch Dressing

Ingredients

12 oz. package of bow tie pasta

15 oz. can of black beans

15 oz. can of whole kernel corn

1/2 cup of green onions*

2 green peppers

2 red peppers

1 orange pepper

1 yellow pepper

1/2 cup of Litehouse Jalapeno Ranch dressing

salt and pepper, to taste

Cook your pasta according to the directions on the box, or the time indicated for “al dente”.  You want your pasta to be cooked, but firm so it will stand up to the other ingredients in the salad and not tear when you stir.  Rinse in cold water to stop the cooking process.  You can substitute different kinds of pasta, I liked the look of the bow tie!  Drain and rinse your black beans and corn.  Chop green onions into small slices.  Peppers should be chopped medium fine.  Combine all these ingredients in a large bowl then mix well with 1/2 cup of Litehouse Jalapeno Ranch Dressing.  If your pasta is sticky, just rinse again in cold water, but drain well.   Add salt and pepper to taste.  Serve on a piece of bib lettuce.  Garnish with tortilla chips.  * Note:  if you are not a big fan of onions, or if you are going to make the salad a day ahead of time, use less onions.
