Caprese Gemelli Salad


Caprese Gemelli Salad

Cook Time: 30 MINUTES

Serves: 2 to 4 PEOPLE


  • 1 box Banza Gemelli
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 fresh ear of corn, kernels removed (frozen corn works too!)
  • 8 oz. fresh mozzarella OR ¼ cup shaved Parmesan (we used both -- you can never have too much cheese)
  • ¼ cup fresh basil
  • Your fave vinaigrette (we used a lemon shallot with 1 minced shallot, 2 tbsp lemon juice, ½ tsp sea salt, & ¼ cup olive oil)
  1. Bring at least 8 cups of salted water to a rolling boil. Cook pasta for 7 minutes. Strain pasta and rinse until cold. Set aside.
  2. Add pasta into the bowl with the dressing. Add halved cherry tomatoes, fresh corn, & cheese of choice. Drizzle with dressing and top with torn basil.
