Pasta Salad with Lime Cumin Vinaigrette

This vinaigrette is really good on green salad but I never documented any pasta salads


1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon minced jalapeno, minced
2 teaspoons olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 bunch cilantro, leaves picked and chopped


Use what ever you like but here is a template.
Mix vinaigrette and add the following:

1/2 cucumber
1/2 red onion sliced thin
halved cherry tomatoes
Fusilli pasta

Let the vinaigrette sit while you boil pasta. Rinse pasta with cold water and slowly add to vinaigrette.

Last night I set 8 large shrimp in the frig with sea salt, onion and garlic powder, fennel, cayenne and oregano/basil. Sauteed them in a butter/oil combo until just pink and then added a few spoonfuls of the salad until heated through adding butter as needed to keep it un-dry. Dropped some goat or feta cheese in at the last.

Kroger sells flash frozen 31-40s for 5.99 a pkg. Great to have on hand.
