Summer Food June 2, 2008

Posted by life2d in side dish, Uncategorized, vegetarian.

I love pasta salads in the summer. My salads are never the same. It all depends on what I have in the house when I make them. Here is the one I made last weekend.


In a jar mix the following ingredients and shake well:

2 tsp olive oil

2 Tbsp spicy vinegar (from a pepperoncini jar)

1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1/4 tsp oregano

1/2 cup low-fat chicken stock

For a fat-free dressing omit the olive oil.

Pasta Salad

1-1 1/2 pounds cooked tri-color spiral pasta

1-2 cups of cherry tomatoes halved

1 cup of kalamata olives halved

1-2 cups of frozen corn, defrosted

1-2 cups of frozen peas, defrosted

1 15 oz. cans of red kidney beans, rinsed

1 15oz cans of garbanzo beans, rinsed

1/2 small onion sliced thin


Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl, pour the dressing over and mix well. Chill before serving.

Sometimes I add grated cheese and cubes of ham or sausage to make it a whole meal.
