|Salad In A Glass|
A few weeks ago, I was asked to contribute a vegetable salad for a gathering of about 30 people. One of my Breakfast Shake friends suggested a Pasta Salad and was kind enough to give me a basic recipe recommending I use whatever I had in the kitchen. This then is my culinary masterpiece that was well received and very much appreciated.
The Recipe :
3 cups mixed vegetables -- I used grated carrots, boiled peas, shredded cabbage and cherry tomatoes; 3 cups mixed fruits like green apple, red apple (cubed), pineapple cubes and grapes, halved; 2 cups of cooked pasta, I used two different types; 1 cup curds; 1/2 cup tomato sauce; 1/2 cup dressing of your choice, I used eggless cole slaw dressing; honey, salt and pepper to taste.
Beat the curds, tomato sauce and dressing to a smooth consistency. Add the vegetables, fruits and pasta and gently mix together. Add pepper, salt & honey to taste. Refrigerate and serve in a glass. Can be a meal in itself. Tastes good and looks good. A great dish for a party!
