Expert Tips

This recipe can be prepared a day in advance, but without the lettuce. Add the chopped lettuce right before serving.

Can you guess what my favorite summer activity is? I'll give you a hint: it's an outdoor activity to be enjoyed with family. It includes a blanket to sit on and a basket filled with snacks or a whole meal to share with the people I love the most. If you guessed picnic, you're right! And if you like picnics as much as I do, then I know you'll love this fresh salad with ham, corn and jalapeño. It's perfect for a picnic at the park or beach.

Directions

  • 1 Cook the pasta in boiling water at high heat until it's finished cooking. Strain the pasta and rinse with cold water.
  • 2 Mix the pasta with all the ingredients (except the lettuce) in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 3 Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Add the lettuce just before serving. Enjoy!
