Classic Pasta Salad with Spring Twist

Spring is here and even with an unusual snow we are seeing nutritious greens all over! We topped our classic pasta salad with #chickweed and #wildmustard for the win. We have a habit of adding ferment brine to salad dressings to boost our daily ferment intake.❤

Salad base:

1 bag of GF pasta spirals, cooked, drained & cooled

Olives, cut in quarters

Cheddar or mozzarella cheese cubed, small

Chickweed tops

Wild mustard flowers and buds

Wild mustard leaves sliced very thin

Classic dressing:

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup of ginger kombucha or ferment brine of choice (opt)

1/4 c maple syrup

1 minced garlic

1 tsp Italian Seasoning

1/2 tsp fine lemon zest, dried or fresh (opt)

Salt and pepper to taste

Mix well and add desired amount to your salad & enjoy! GF pasta will absorb dressing so I suggest adding it right before serving!

PS Quinoa or salad greens make a good substitute for pasta.
