1 box (16 ounces) rotini noodles
1 cup mayonnaise
½ cup nonfat Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon Louisiana hot sauce or preferred hot sauce
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped, or 2 tablespoons Simply Organic® Parsley
¼ cup green onion, chopped
1 packet Simply Organic® Cajun Dry Rub
1½ cups red bell pepper, julienned
1 cup celery, chopped
1 cup carrot, shredded
¼ cup red onion, sliced
- Cook noodles as directed on the box. Drain, let cool and refrigerate in a 6-quart bowl until ready to assemble pasta salad.
- In a separate bowl, combine mayonnaise, yogurt, hot sauce, lemon juice, parsley, green onion and Cajun Dry Rub.
- Remove chilled pasta from refrigerator and add red bell pepper, carrot, celery and red onion, stirring gently to combine. Add Cajun mayonnaise mixture and stir until well coated.
- Chill for a minimum of 30 minutes before serving.
Add cooked and chilled shrimp or chicken to salad for extra protein.
For even fresher taste when using Simply Organic Parsley, soak the leaves in a little ice water for 5 to 10 minutes, then drain, before using.
