Perfect for picnics or for a filling and fast weeknight meal, this pasta salad can be assembled with whatever protein floats your boat as a main dish or as a side dish without. But it’s pretty tasty with grilled shrimp, if that’s your thing. The raw, live probiotics come into play by tossing the salad with our Green Goddess Dressing, rich with fermented goodness and flavor from our Dill & Garlic Sauerkraut.
8 oz. uncooked bow tie pasta
1 lb. shrimp, peeled
Salt & pepper
1/2 c. marinated artichoke hearts, chopped
2 Tbsp. red onion, finely diced
1/2 c. cucumber, chopped
1 pint cherry tomatoes, cut into halves
Salt & pepper to taste
Green Goddess Dressing (see link above)
Chopped parsley for garnish
Serves 4, as a main dish
Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water as directed on the package.
