Spinach Pasta Salad is made with fresh garden vegetables.  I love spinach in anything and this salad is so good.  I am adding the dressing I use on this salad but you could use any dressing or just sprinkle on some olive oil.  Salads in the summer made with fresh garden produce are one of my favorite things to have for lunch.  This salad will keep in the fridge for two to three days if you have any leftover but it goes quick at my house.  I used bow-tie pasta in this recipe but you could use any pasta you like.

Salad:

2 cups spinach, broken in pieces or chopped

1 cup cooked chopped ham (could use about any meat you want)

1/2 cup chopped green onion

1/2 cup chopped and peeled cucumber

2 boiled eggs, chopped

1 1/2 cups uncooked pasta, (cooked al dente according to package directions) drained

1 large tomato, chopped

Dressing:

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon white vinegar

1 tablespoon white granulated sugar

1 teaspoon dried basil or 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped

Mix together salad ingredients in a large bowl.  Combine dressing ingredients and mix with spoon.  Toss salad and dressing together.  Makes 6 to 8 servings.  Enjoy!

Note:  This salad is so versatile in that you can add all kinds of garden vegetables such as corn, peas, carrots, peppers and it will still be a great fresh salad.
