You are probably thinking... well, where did she get this great recipe. The recipe came from one of our FFF members Lois from Walking on Sunshine and she in turned got it from Sunflower Supper Club. The original recipe was posted on our Linky Party. See how great these parties are, recipes are passed from one to another and either used as the recipe states or in my case tweaked slightly. You can always join us, each weekend for our linky parties, either coming back to my blog or heading over to Foodie Friends Friday. There are always great recipes from a multiple of great cooks and the best part they have been tried and liked by the bloggers and their families themselves.
Let's get onto what I did to this fabulous recipes. The only thing I really did was add more vegetables. To see the original recipe from Walking on Sunshine go HERE.
|Fresh Veggies with Pasta and Smoked Salmon|
1 cup tomatoes - I used both red and yellow cut in small pieces
1/2 cup red onions -diced
1/2 cup cucumbers -diced
1/2 banana pepper - cut in small slices
1 1/2 garlic cloves minced
1/8 cup fresh basil - chopped (that was all I had - you could use more)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
2 cups cooked pasta - I used small shells
1/2 cup Tillamook garlic white cheddar cheese (cut in approx 1 cm cubes)
3/4 cup smoked salmon

Cut vegetables and place in bowl. In separate bowl combine basil, olive, oil, vinegar, salt and pepper and stir until mixed. Add to vegetable mixture, cover and let sit for approximately an hour, stirring occasionally.
Cook pasta as directed on box. Add to vegetable mixture, stir. Add cheddar cheese and smoked salmon. Place on plate and garnish with fresh parsley. Enjoy.
