I first had this Sun-Dried Tomato Feta Pasta Salad from the grocery deli and I was in love at first bite! It was like every flavor in that salad (which is filled with bold flavor) was jumping in turn, hoping to get noticed; keeping my interest and making me want to go back for another bite and another!
My daughter introduced me to one of her fave recipes. It’s Creamy Chicken with Sun Dried Tomatoes. If you do a search, there are many variations on this dish (and of the name, although sometimes you’ll see it called Tuscan Chicken – I think that’s an American affectation); this one is straightforward and easy and only has a handful of ingredients – but it’s no less delish for all of that!
I’m a huge fan of Sun-Dried Tomatoes like these Oven-Dried Tomatoes (or Un Sun Tomatoes I hear them called sometimes!) And I’m a fan of Slow Roasted Tomatoes, too. Both have such an intensity and are so easy. But taking those intense tomatoes and make a dressing/vinaigrette like this Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette is a way to get incredible flavor with very little effort!
A bit of cooked Barley was the “by-product” of my Healthy Lemon Ginger Barley Water recipe awhile back. Well, if you know me, you know I try to waste nothing, and sure didn’t want to waste a morsel of wonderful, chewy, nutty Barley. (I love it, and so should you, btw! It’s really good for you!) And so I went on a quest and that quest ended in this Salad with Smoky Sheet Tray Roasted Vegetables & Barley. It’s a lot to use a cup of Barley, huh?!
Here’s a Pasta Salad that’s fantastic for a party or gathering any time of year. This isn’t any plain ol’ boring Pasta Salad, though. This is Tortellini Antipasto Salad and it has it all! Lots of stuff. Lots of cheese. Lots of flavor and the best dressing you’ve ever tasted.
