  1. Here’s one for you. We love this salad and it’s especially good with a crusty bread of some kind (or cornbread — which is my favorite).

    Burst Into Spring Salad

    1/2 pound penne pasta
    1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
    3 TBS olive oil
    1/2 cup cooked frozen peas
    1/2 cup red bell pepper, cut into 1/2″ pieces
    1/2 cup cubed fresh mozzarella
    1/2 cup red onion, cut into 1/2 ” pieces
    4-5 fresh basil leaves, chopped
    1 chopped garlic clove

    For dressing:
    1 1/2 TBS red wine vinegar
    1 chopped garlic clove
    1/2 TBS balsamic vinegar
    5 TBS olive oil
    1 tsp Dijon mustard

    Cook pasta until al dente, rinse under cold water and drain. Transfer to large bowl. Meanwhile, saute the red pepper & onion until softened, about 3 min. Add garlic and salt & pepper to taste. Cook about 30 seconds – one minute. Transfer to bowl of pasta and toss.

    Add drained peas, mozzarella, basil and salt & pepper, to taste, to mixture and toss.

    Combine the vinegars, mustard, garlic and stir with a whisk. While stirring constantly, slowly add olive oil and continue to whisk until blended.

    Pour dressing over salad and mix well. Add more salt & pepper to taste and serve.
