How to do

Lobster: You can use fresh or frozen lobster, whatever you have available. Here on Long Island we have many lobster farms that often have special offers. I used four whole live lobsters and had them steamed for me.

If you don't have a fresh lobster, you can pick up four larger frozen tails that you can thaw and then steam until just cooked. Once the lobster is cooked, let it cool and make your salad.

Pasta: Of course, if you're looking to spend good money on lobster, you should also use high quality noodles. I teamed up with Delallo, my pasta and the only brand I use. It is imported from Italy and made with just two ingredients – wheat that has been ground into flour and water. I used DeLallos Cavatappi, "a twisted corkscrew with a hole", in this lobster pasta salad.

How I make it easier: This pasta salad is heavy on the lobster and lighter on the noodles. I loaded it with lobster so it's full of protein with every bite. I also use less mayo by adding some 0% fat Greek yogurt to keep it creamy without the added fat.


  • If lobster isn't available in your area, consider using cooked crab meat, lobster, or shrimp instead.
  • Sub cavatappi with fusilli, macaroni or a bow tie.
  • Swap red onions for more chives.
