A zesty little pasta salad to brighten up your day!

Really don’t want to give myself toooooooooo much credit here, but I TOTALLY KILLED THIS ONE. Heaven on a plate. 

Fresh cherry heirloom tomatoes getting all amongst the basil + penne? I don’t even need to sell this one. Nothing about that combination could possibly be wrong. 

So let’s just get down to it.

Ingreds:

Lemon Dressing

  • 3 parts EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
  • 2 parts fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • Finely ground sea salt
  • Coarse ground pepper
  • Garlic powder

Salad

  • Cooked penne (al dante)
  • Red + yellow heirloom cherry tomatoes
  • Fresh basil chopped (or not, if you’re bad like that ?)
  • Thinly sliced purple onion
  • More salt + pepper to taste! 

And here’s how we do it folks.

Step 1: Make your dressing. Just put all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. I like to go wild with the garlic (because flavour,) so I use a VERY generous pinch of garlic in my dressing. Living on the wild side, I’m aware. ?

Step 2: Throw all your salad ingredients in a bowl, and lightly toss and add one last dash of salt and pepper. 

This should take you no more than 20 minutes in total to make, and probably under 3 minutes to consume. If you eat like me, that is. AKA like a rabid dog. (Wish I was kidding.) ?

My Lemon Basil Penne Salad is perrrrfect for a summer lunch or BBQ. 

Try it out and let me know how it goes!
