A light, easy and delicious spinach salad that tosses farfalle pasta, fresh strawberries, blackberries, pecans and basil in a balsamic vinaigrette.
One of my favorite things about summer is all the fresh fruit and produce. Berries are so good right now and my kiddos and I can’t seem to get enough. They are little fruit monsters and we can easily go through 2 pounds in just one sitting some days.
Our favorite way to enjoy them is plain and straight from the bowl but I also love tossing some berries into my salad to add a natural sweetness to complement the rest of the flavors.
This Mixed Berry Spinach Pasta Salad makes a nice and light lunch and is super easy to throw together.
All you need is some crispy romaine lettuce and a few cups of spinach. Throw in some fresh basil and your favorite cooked pasta and then top with fresh sweet strawberries and blackberries. You can also add some blueberries as well.
To make this a main dish, just add in some chopped grilled or rotisserie chicken.
This makes a great side dish and a wonderful addition to those picnics, barbecues and potlucks going on this weekend.
Have a safe and fun weekend everyone!
