Peach + Corn Pasta Salad

God bless football.

Perhaps that sounds a little backwoods or something, but I mean it with all my heart.

I can’t even put into words how happy I am the NFL is back.

One of the true delights of my life is putting on my Seahawks gear & forcing Topanga to wear her jersey and gluing myself to the TV to watch my baby boys play. During the National Anthem, they panned to Russell Wilson praying with a couple of guys and I LOST IT. Like big, ugly sobs. I’d like to blame it on the hormones, but I think I was just overwhelmed that football is back and there is some sense of normalcy in our lives. Top it off with a win and I was pretty inconsolable.

Garrett is so supportive during these times. He just kept bringing me snacks and cleaning up my dishes so I could fully enjoy.

Time: 30 minutes (prep + cooking) | Serves: 3-4

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of cooked whole wheat pasta
  • 2 peaches, peeled + sliced
  • 2 ears of corn
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/2 a red onion, sliced thin
  • 2 cups of arugula
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • S+P, to taste

How to:

  • In a bowl, combine pasta + peaches + corn + tomato + red onion + arugula + S+P
  • In another bowl, combine lemon juice + olive oil + S+P
  • Drizzle dressing on salad + serve chilled or room temperature
  • Put on a lil sundress + pour yourself something bubbly + enjoy this salad al fresco, pretending you’re someplace way better than wherever you actually are
