Summer Recipe- Lite Delight
Though the calendar says June 2nd, I declare it’s summer when it’s 85 degrees at 11 PM!
So here is a recipe to keep cooking to a minimum and good taste to the maximum…along with keeping the calorie score low so your bathing suit score is high!
Want to make this scrumptious salad help you eat less by feeling full longer? Add some protein: tuna, salmon, chicken, or flavored-baked tofu.
1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 8-10 minutes, or according to package directions. Drain and refresh under cold running water.
2. Whisk mayonnaise, yogurt, oil, vinegar (or lemon juice), garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl until smooth. Add the pasta and toss to coat. Add tomatoes, bell pepper, carrots, scallions, olives and basil; toss to coat well.
To make this dish ahead, cover and refrigerate for up to one day.
