Pasta Salad & Lemon-Orange Vinagarette

Pasta Salad with Lemon-Orange Vinaigrette

I am really loving salads of all sorts right now! I came up with this salad recipe by using leftovers I had in the fridge and pantry. It is so light and refreshing, but I have to say, the dressing makes this salad. Hope you enjoy.

Ingredients: (For the salad)

*8-10 oz of uncooked bowtie pasta ( you can use any pasta you have on hand)

*1 cup of seedless grapes – halved

*1 orange, peeled and segmented

*1 bag of fresh broccoli cut into bite size pieces

*1/4 cup of almond slivers

*1 tsp salt and 1 tsp of pepper

 

Ingredients: (for the dressing)

*1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil (I recommend Simply Infused!)

*1 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of pepper

*the zest of 1/2 lemon and the zest of 1/2 orange

*the juice of one lemon and the juice of 1 orange

*1 tsp coarse mustard

*1 Tbs honey

*1 Tbs apple cider vinegar

Directions:

*Cook the pasta according to directions on box, drain, rinse with cold water

*Chop broccoli, grapes and orange

*Combine the pasta, broccoli, grapes, almonds, salt, pepper and orange segments

For the dressing:

*Combine all of the ingredients for the dressing. I use Ball jars because they are easy. Shake until mixed. Pour over salad and put in fridge for 30 minutes or longer and serve cold!
