Great at room temperature, this zesty pasta salad is perfect for a picnic, potluck, or buffet. It’s versatile, too—any small pasta works well, and you can swap out the basil for fresh parsley or cilantro, if you like.
Make Ahead Tips
The salad can be made up to 2 hours ahead and kept at room temperature.

I took this salad to a "geezer" potluck--older people--and it was almost completely eaten up. The second time I made it, though, I must have combined the basil with too-hot ingredients, because it turned black. Tasted great anyway.
This is simple, but good, especially if you need a fast corn salad. I ended up serving it hot, which was delicious!
