_bbR3iY5lLSjzaZNziPYc6VX6tk Inspiration CAN be found EVERYWHERE!: LEMON MAYO PASTA SALAD

Wednesday, May 13, 2015


I love the look of this one.  

Lets face it, we all seem to make the same things every year for our BBQs or Cookouts. How about we try something "new" this year.

Here is a great idea from Tupperware for a Pasta Salad that I'm going to try this year.


Lemon Mayo (makes 1 cup)
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
½ lemon, juiced 
         using the Zest ’N Press™ Gadget
¼ tsp. coarse kosher salt
¾ cup canola oil

Pasta Salad
12 oz./350 g farfalle
2 green onions, quartered
2 celery stalks, quartered
¾ cup baby carrots
½ green bell pepper, seeded and quartered
½ cup Lemon Mayo
½ tsp. coarse kosher salt
¼ tsp. black pepper, freshly ground
1 cup cooked chicken, cubed (optional)


To prepare Lemon Mayo:

Place egg yolk, mustard, lemon juice and salt into base of Power Chef™ System fitted with paddle whisk attachment. 
Cover and pull cord several times to blend. 
Place funnel in recess and slowly add oil while pulling cord until all oil is fully incorporated and mayo is thick. Set aside.

To prepare pasta salad:
Place pasta in Microwave Pasta Maker and fill with water to max fill line. Microwave on high power 14 minutes or until al dente.

While pasta is cooking, place green onions, celery, carrots and bell pepper into base of Power Chef™ System fitted with blade attachment.  Cover and pull cord 6–7 times to roughly chop. Transfer to medium bowl.

When pasta has finished cooking, remove from microwave, drain and rinse with cold water until cool.

Add pasta to vegetables along with Lemon Mayo, salt, pepper and chicken (if desired). 
Mix thoroughly using the Saucy Silicone Spatula. 
Chill before serving.

To create a Lemon & Garlic Aioli, follow the Lemon Mayo recipe, but finely process 2 garlic cloves in Chop ’N Prep Chef and add along with the first ingredients.

I love making my own Mayo so that it is FRESH and not with a lot of preservatives or things I can't pronounce.  The Power Chef System makes it a breeze to make.  Check it out.  You can pick up all the pieces noted above, including the Power Chef System on my Tupperware Site or you can join my team and get it (Power Chef) at a huge discount for joining this month.
