Sweet and filling strawberry pasta salad with tangy dressing.

This strawberry and pasta combination is the perfect early summer salad. Fresh greens with sweet berries and filling pasta, tossed with a tangy apple cider and honey Dijon dressing.


For the dressing, try to find the lightest vegetable oil possible so it doesn't add a heaviness. Alternatively, a light-flavoured extra-virgin olive oil can also be used.


As is, this salad is perfect for ovo-lacto vegetarians. Vegans, switch to a vegan blue cheese, or omit the cheese entirely, and use a bee-free honey. For those on a gluten-free diet, use your favourite gluten-free pasta to substitute.

 

Ingredients

(Makes 12 servings)

salad:

  • 2 cups arugula

  • 2 cups baby spinach

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered

  • 1 cup farfalle

  • 1/2 cup Stilton cheese, crumbled

dressing:

  • 1/2 cup light vegetable oil

  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

 

Directions

In a medium pot, prepare the farfalle according to package instructions. Once ready, drain, rinse and set aside to cool.


In a small mixing bowl, add the ingredients listed under dressing. Whisk to combine then transfer into an airtight container and refrigerate for 1-hour to allow the flavours to meld.


Before serving, combine the salad ingredients in a serving bowl and toss with the dressing. Serve immediately.
