Fresh Pasta Salad

Fresh Pasta Salad




Fresh Pasta Salad



Salad ingredients

3 tb fine chopped onion

2/3 cup broccoli cut small bout the size of nickels

2 1/2 cups tri-colored noodles

1/4 cup red bell pepper cut into strips and then about in 3rds (1/2 inch long)

2/3 cup cubed mozzerella lil smaller than a dice. I made cubes out of a block of cheese I had, but if you have string cheese, I bet this would be a really easy thing to cube too.

1/2 avacado diced same size as cheese

4 slices of turkey bacon microwaved till crisp and then cut into small peices

1/2 can of black olives cut up



Salad dressing ingredients

1/4 cup olive oil

1 1/4 tblspn fresh chopped basil

1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt

2 tsp of lemon juice

1 tsp of apple cider viniger

2 tblspn basalmic vinigarette



Mix dressing together then pour over salad.

Toss

Let chill at least 30 minutes b4 serving.


Would probably be good with a summer sausage type meat rather than bacon too, but turkey bacon is low fat, and also gives it a lil smokey type flavor. :)


Key:

Let chill at least 30 to let flavors build

FRESH basil!!!!!
