Thank you to Produce for Kids for sponsoring this post.
I am a fan of all kinds of salads however for some reason I don’t like making lettuce salads. That probably sounds funny but I think it’s a lot of work cutting up all the vegetables just to have it eaten in about 5 minutes. I do cut up raw vegetables all the time for meals like casseroles, slow cooker meals and everything in between. It’s just something with salads.
Anyway I’ve been looking to add some variety to other kinds of non-lettuce salads so I was happy to find this zesty pasta salad from Produce for Kids. If you’re unfamiliar with Produce for Kids, it’s a fantastic resource of healthy recipes approved by registered dietitians, nutrition tips and meal planning tools.
