Sunday Salad

Sunday, September 5, 2010 |

I had this salad years ago and loved it so much that I wrote the ingredients down before we left the restaurant. The beauty of this salad is that you can make it as big or small depending on the number of people you're serving and the taste doesn't change. I love salads that you can tweak and they don't lose their balance.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we all do!

Agapi Pasta Salad

Layer in the order ingredients appear

3 cups mixed greens
2 cups spinach
2 cups bowtie or penne pasta {I use Dreamfields}
2 grilled chicken breasts sliced

6 strips of bacon chopped {I use turkey bacon}
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onions

1cup cherry tomatoes halved
1/3 cup gorgonzola or blue cheese

Balsamic vinaigrette {we like Paul Newman's light}

I don't dress the whole salad as I always make extra for lunch the next day. It holds up well in the frig over night.
