Here’s a great meatless recipe with real Mediterranean flair that’s hearty enough to qualify as an entrée. Laced with a tart vinaigrette dressing and bursting with strips of sweet pepper, onion and zucchini, it’s also colorful enough to serve as a pretty side dish. Thanks to subscriber Stacey Mofle in Universal City, Texas for this tasty dish!
"A variation of this recipe was originally served as a side dish at a popular French restaurant," says Eileen Herr from Indianapolis, Indiana. "I added a few more ingredients to make it a cool and hearty meal. The recipe is very adaptable—it's also delicious with chicken and snow peas."
When it comes to pleasing a crowd at a potluck, my change-of-pace pasta salad does the trick. The colorful medley combines pasta, veggies, cheeses and pepperoni for a refreshing and filling side dish that everyone is sure to love.
