I love pasta salad, but the problem is sometimes I find that the pasta is quite tasteless & worse for me is if it is undercooked…or overcooked I suppose! I realize I don’t love the vegetables in there either…I am not being critical of other peoples pasta salads…I just wanted to make mine a bit different & see how it turned out.
I was visiting Murray’s aunt a few months ago & went through her recipes! This bean salad recipe is most likely from the 70’s she said! Written on a scrap of paper…I do not know where she got the recipe from.
I posted this recipe in March 2017. I think I will add some raspberries to this salad…I am going to buy a bag of frozen raspberries & toss some into this salad. To make this a dinner salad, you can add some cooked chicken or fish to this! I think this is what we are having for dinner tonight!
I am having company for dinner tonight.. & cold not decide what to make a side dish with the chicken… so, ha, I decided to look through my own blog for some recipe that I might have forgotten about! & I found this! I love it..
I am re-posting this salad …. I really need something green for dinner!! We are in a snow fall warning today in Edmonton….ha so green on our plates tonight!!!

I don’t know if you have ever eaten Halloumi cheese but I love it. This cheese is having ‘a day’, showing up on menus in restaurants & it is available in most major grocery stores….in my city of Edmonton anyway.
This spinach salad with fruit is an old favourite & one of my daughters all time favs! It comes to me from my friend Nora probably over 25 years ago….
