Pasta Salad with Tomatoes and Grilled Garlic-Herb SalmonServings: 8
The recipe for this hearty pasta salad comes from our friends at Mrs. Dash.
12 oz penne pasta
1 roasted red pepper, peeled and diced
2 roasted yellow peppers, peeled and diced
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved, yellow if possible
2 medium tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 large cucumber, seeded and diced
1 Tablespoon olive oil
3 Tablespoons Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb Seasoning Blend, divided
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 Tablespoons low sodium chicken broth
8 4-oz salmon fillets
Cook pasta according to package directions and set aside. Combine olive oil, 2 tablespoons Garlic & Herb Seasoning Blend, lemon juice and broth in a large bowl. Add prepared vegetables and pasta, toss well and chill.
When ready to serve, brush salmon fillets with a little olive oil and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon Garlic & Herb Seasoning Blend. Grill fillets 3-4 minutes per side on medium heat. Serve hot with pasta salad.

Tip: To get more whole grains and fiber, choose a whole wheat or whole wheat blend pasta for this recipe. If you like your pasta cooked al dente, you'll enjoy the chewier texture of whole wheat pasta. If you prefer softer, less chewy pasta, then try a whole wheat blend instead.
