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.

Spinach Pasta Salad Ingredients needed: 


Ham (could use about any meat you want)

Boiled eggs

uncooked pasta


Dressing Ingredients needed:



Black pepper

White vinegar

White granulated sugar

Dried basil or fresh basil

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. It would be delicious with our slow cooker chicken bbq! Make some sandwiches, add this salad and you have a delicious meal.
