Easy-Peasy Sandwiches of Summer (and a pasta salad side)!

May 12, 2019

This week at Fresh Madison Market, we offer you all you need for fresh-and-delicious sandwiches.  Easy to make, easy to take, and a thousand times better than hitting up a drive-thru!  Bring together Dietz & Watson pepper and garlic turkey breast (only $9.99/lb) with Cady Creek sharp cheddar cheese ($6.99/lb) and some fresh tomatoes still on the vine ($.99/lb), and you’re out the door with the perfect lunch. 

Our bright bell peppers in red, yellow, or orange, are just 2 for $3 and are the star of this great pasta salad from AllRecipies.com:

Here’s your shopping list:

•    16 oz rotini pasta

•    1/3 cup vegetable oil

•    ¼ cup fresh lime juice

•    2 tbsp chili powder

•    2 tsp ground cumin

•    ½ tsp salt

•    2 cloves garlic, crushed

•    1 ½ cups whole kernel corn

•    15 oz can of black beans (drained and rinsed)

•    ½ cup of diced green bell pepper

•    ½ cup diced red bell pepper

•    ½ cup fresh cilantro leaves

•    1 cup chopped Roma tomatoes


Now, let’s put it all together:

•    Cook pasta and rinse (approx. 8 to 10 mins, drain).

•    Combine oil, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, salt, and garlic.

•    Stir in pasta and let cool to room temperature

•    Stir in corn, beans, red & green peppers, and ½ of the cilantro.

•    Serve chilled or at room temperature and garnish with tomatoes and remaining cilantro
