Bow Tie & Spinach Salad
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
Loved this!! I did tweak it a bit as I am not a fresh tomato fan. So i added in extra peppers and onions. I also probably used more than the recipe called for with the olives and broccoli. It made a ton but kept great in a tight closed container in the fridge for 5 days. Easily could add any meat for an extra kick of protein but with the chickpeas in it has everything you need. Will definitely be making this again.
I gave this a 1 star only because I haven't tried it yet. I can't figure out how this and many other of the recipes can be for diabetes. I thought that pasta, potatoes, bread, rice,etc..are big no-one's. At least that's what my Doctor has been telling me. Some of these I could actually enjoy. Including yours.
Prepared this for a large crowd with several picky eaters, but I still received many compliments. I did eliminate the olives, knowing this crowd would probably shy away from that ingredient. I didn't have quite enough red pepper, so I used orange pepper, as well. It just made for a more colorful salad for our Easter meal. I used Russian dressing because I couldn't find sundried tomato dressing. Curious to know where other cooks found the dressing and what brand?
My husband and I could not get enough of this! So tasty! Loved everything about it. We served with grilled chicken on the side.
Delicious. I added shrimp to mine and it was a complete meal.
Great for a large crowd. Next time, I would leave the olives out. Otherwise, it was a great salad.
