Pasta Salad with Walnuts and Blue Cheese
SERVINGS> 2
TIME> 5–15 minutes

Start with chilled cooked pasta, and this salad can come together in under five minutes. It makes a great entrée with the addition of cooked meat or grilled vegetables.

2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ cup chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons chopped
fresh parsley
1 tablespoon coarse-ground
prepared mustard
1 tablespoon crumbled
blue cheese
3 cups cooked fettucini
2 cups mixed baby greens
fresh lemon juice

Optional Additions
roasted chicken
grilled vegetables
fresh basil

In a large bowl, combine olive oil, walnuts, parsley, mustard, and blue cheese. Fold in chilled pasta, along with any optional ingredients.

Serve greens with pasta on top. Add lemon juice and salt to taste.

Toasting the walnuts makes this salad more flavorful and takes only a few extra minutes. You can do this in a small dry pan or in a 350-degree oven. Watch them closely so they do not burn!
