Corn-Fettuccine Salad

Souper Salad is definitely my favorite lunch spot.  I always enjoy nomming down on their crunchy chow mein noodles, gingerbread cake, blueberry bread, and complimentary soft-serve ice cream - uh... lettuce.  But my absolute MOST favorite thing to pile on my plate at Souper Salad is definitely the fettuccine pasta salad.  It's got sweet corn and parmesan, all wrapped up in tasty pasta goodness.

I came across a copycat recipe for that glorious salad awhile back and had to try it out.  Copycat recipes often miss the mark, but this one is a definite keeper.  It went well with leftover blackened chicken.

Adapted from Copykat.com

8 oz. Fettuccine
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 cup corn kernels
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste

1.  Prepare fettuccine according to package directions.  Drain.
2.  In a large bowl, combine the pasta, mayonnaise, corn, parmesan, and garlic powder.  Stir well, and add salt and pepper to taste.  Serve chilled.
Pin It!


  1. hmm yummy, maybe you can even add some peas to it for some extra veggies?

  2. That does sound good! I was thinking of slicing up a green onion next time for some extra color, too.

  3. This intrigues me! Sounds great on top of lettuce.

  4. Thanks Branny! And yes, I bet that would be really good.

  5. Mmmm, I know what I'm making for dinner tomorrow!!

  6. Ashlee: Awesome- let me know how you like it!

  7. Omg that is my fav pasta I was telling my coworker I wanted to find out the recipe and lookie here I found it(: thanks!

  8. loved this recipe. good job! i garnished with roasted cherry tomatoes

  9. Aww, thanks so much for the feedback! The roasted cherry tomatoes sound divine!

  10. I used to go to Souper Salad all the time, I asked the manager for the recipe. He said he couldn't give it to me, but he did tell me the ingredients. ;) If I remember correctly, it's supposed to be creamed corn. I haven't tried this version, but I have a hankering for it, so might have to make some.

  11. Sorry, I know this was posted a long time ago but I just found it...

    I am so thrilled to find this. That was one of my favorite dishes at Souper Salad, too. Our Souper Salad closed years ago and I'd completely forgotten about this salad. I will definitely be making this! I also loved the Asian chicken salad.
