For the Pasta Salad:

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Serves 6

  • 12 ounces gluten-free pasta (such as brown rice or quinoa pasta)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken breast (about 2 small chicken breasts)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels, cooked and cooled
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Pesto:

  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast (or grated Parmesan cheese, if not dairy-free)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Cook the gluten-free pasta according to package instructions. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process. Combine the cooked pasta, shredded chicken, corn, diced avocado, chopped basil, and chopped parsley in a large bowl. To make the pesto, combine the fresh basil leaves, chopped walnuts, and garlic in a food processor. Pulse until coarsely chopped.

Add the olive oil, nutritional yeast (or grated Parmesan cheese), and lemon juice to the food processor. Process until the mixture forms a smooth sauce—season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the pesto sauce to the pasta salad and toss to combine. If the salad seems dry, add olive oil or a splash of water to loosen the pesto. Season the pasta salad with salt and pepper to taste. If desired, sprinkle with additional chopped walnuts for extra crunch.
