1. To make the cream corn pasta salad: Cook pasta al dente, according to package directions. Drain and set aside – you can keep some of the pasta cooking water to make the sauce later.

2. While pasta is cooking, whisk together sour cream, mayonnaise, a few tablespoons of the pasta cooking water (optional), and freshly squeezed lime juice in a mason jar. If you feel your salad dressing is too thick, add more sour cream, small amounts of water, or extra lime juice (or lemon juice). Or a combination of what I just listed.

3. In a large bowl, combine cooked and drained pasta, cooked corn kernels, diced bell pepper, and chopped cooked ham. Add a few dollops of the salad dressing, then mix to combine.

4. Distribute into individual salad bowls, and sprinkle the creamy corn pasta salad with chopped fresh basil. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the creamy corn pasta salad recipe

  • We used 1 cup of cooked corn kernels. That equals two ears of corn on the cob.
  • You can choose a 100% sour cream dressing instead of adding mayo.
  • You can add a tablespoon of pesto to the sauce if you like.
  • We used farfalle pasta in this recipe. You can also use orecchiette or fusilli, as they will retain the sauce well.
  • Chop your vegetables reasonably small, so they mix well with the pasta.
  • Don’t overcook the pasta, as this can make your salad soggy.
  • Allow your pasta salad to chill for at least an hour before serving.

How to keep the creamy pasta salad leftovers

You can keep any pasta salad leftover in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to 3 days.
