This is one of the few times I tell you to drizzle directly onto the salad instead of making a dressing separately. I on purpose said this because I like the separate flavors of this dressing.
This is so flavorful! I love using orange and red tomatoes because they have different flavors and add such a variety of colors.
This is such a great dish and takes no time to make! Add your own favorite fresh herbs to it; my top choices would be mint, cilantro or basil (or all three!)
This is my version of pasta and meatballs. It has so much flavor and is more fun than what people are used to. Use a fattier minced meat so that your meatballs are not dry. If you want to save time, don’t make meatballs! Make this pasta and meat sauce. To do so, just skip the step of forming the meatballs. Add the olive oil to the pan, sear the ground meat, add the rest of the ingredients and follow the rest of the directions from when you would have added the meatballs back into the pot. And done!
If you are eating this salad by itself (not as a side to pasta) feel free to add grilled chicken, steak, tofu, cheese or tuna! It’s a great appetizer salad too if you want to add pulled fish.
