Serves 6

Pasta Salad

  • 12 ounces Sfolgini everything bagel fusilli (or whole-wheat fusilli)
  • 3-4 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 Red onion, diced
  • 1/2 bunch Green onions, diced
  • 1/2 bunch Arugula, kale, or lettuce, shredded roughly
  • 4 ounces Cream cheese or Neufchatel, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons Capers
  • 12 ounces Lox, diced
  • 2-4 tablespoons "Everything Bagel" seasoning (dried garlic, dried onions, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, coarse salt)

"Everything Bagel"-infused Olive Oil

  • 3 tablespoons Olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Neutral oil, like grapeseed
  • 2-4 tablespoons "Everything Bagel" seasoning (dried garlic, dried onions, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, coarse salt)
  1. Bring salted water to a boil on the stovetop. Add fusilli and cook to al dente, according to package or about 5-8 minutes. Drain pasta and transfer to a bowl. Place in refrigerator or freezer (if you are short on time) to chill.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together oil ingredients and let sit.
  3. While dressing is combining and pasta cools, chop and cut vegetables, cheese and lox.
  4. Combine cooled pasta and vegetables and drizzle with half of the dressing. Add cream cheese and lox and remainder of dressing, and toss gently to just combine - cheese may lose its cubed shape. Season with salt, pepper and "everything bagel" seasoning according to your taste.
